Some of you might remember drooling over the luxurious 2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600 Pullman just a couple of months ago; who could forget it? The good news is that this amazing vehicle is back in our minds and dreams, and it’s better than ever!
Called the Pullman Guard, the new version of the flagship S600 Pullman has been specifically designed to provide optimal protection to anyone wealthy enough to afford it or worried enough to actually need one – that’s why VR9 protection class might come in useful.
Specially made steel has been integrated between the body structure and the outer skin, while Aramid and PE components on the exterior provide splinter protection. Even the windows offer some sort of protection, as they have been coated in polycarbonate, which sounds sophisticated and expensive, but it might save a few lives.
Furthermore, the Maybach S600 Pullman Guard also packs sirens, two-way radios, an emergency starter battery, sirens and an external loudspeaker. Technically speaking, a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V12 outputs 530 hp and 830 Nm of torque; however, the vehicle’s top speed has been electronically limited to 160 km/h (99 mph) due to the considerable weight of that extra protection.
On the inside, future owners of this mind blowing vehicle may be surprised by the finest levels of luxury available on any production car, such as executive seats with an adjustable support, along with an array of heating and massage functions. Starting July 2017, customers may benefit from this 1.4 million euros ($1.56 million) personal guard.
