Mercedes-Maybach’s Armored S600 Is For Motorists With Determined Enemies

Mercedes-Maybach is rolling out an armored version of the S600 Pullman limousine developed at the request of motorists who — for whatever reason — risk their lives every time they go out in public.

Called S600 Pullman Guard, the bulletproof sedan is all but identical to its non-armored counterpart when it’s viewed from the outside. Mercedes explains it left the exterior mostly stock on purpose in order to deter enemies.

To keep occupants alive, the S600 is fitted with a special type of steel sandwiched between the body structure and the sheet metal, underbody armor plates, and panels that overlap for comprehensive ballistic protection. Polycarbonate coating on the bulletproof glass ensures the occupants aren’t covered in splinters if the windows are shot at.
