Mercedes-Maybach S600 Pullman Guard

Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Pullman Guard.

Soon available for every dictator; the new S600 Pullman Guard by Mercedes and Maybach. Lets dissect that name for a bit. Mercedes-Maybach is the badge on the most exquisite versions of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, but those are not necessarily lengthened. Thats where the Lang-versions and Pullman-label comes in. Pullman is different from Lang, because it has four seats in opposite position, where Lang version only has two seats and a boatload of legroom.

Since it weighs more than 5000 kilos, the 600 engine actually has work to do. the V12 boasts around 1000Nm of torque, which should help it to the limited top speed of 160 kp/h as soon as possible. Then the Guard designation. It stands for all the armoured versions Mercedes offers, so it also has E-Class Guards and G-Guards. This particular one has the VR9 rating, which means it withstands automatic rifle crossfire and TNT up to 15 kilos, if its positioned no closer than 2 metres from the vehicle. In other words, when you drive over an IED that size you’re probably still toast.

It’s no tank, but probably the closest you can get to president Obama’s Cadillac-based Beast. Price: Around 1.5 million euros.
