The aim of the Guard models from Mercedes-Benz is to protect the occupants
from violent criminal acts. Neither is it only government ministers and top
managers who are under threat nowadays, as drivers in many regions of the
world do not feel safe from acts of violence. Mercedes-Benz has the answer
to violent attack with its armoured Guard models from the S, E and G-Class.
The flagship of the Mercedes-Benz Guard portfolio is the S 600 Pullman
Guard, a prestigious state limousine with an opulently spacious and
luxurious interior. Depending on the customer's requirements, the Guard
models are resistant to handgun and rifle fire, and also certain
explosives, while offering their occupants outstanding comfort and
The Mercedes-Benz S 600 Guard is the armoured, special protection version
of the long-wheelbase Mercedes-Benz S 600. The generous spaciousness
of this flagship model, which offers all its occupants a first-class
ambience, outstanding ride comfort and superior driving characteristics, is
almost fully retained in the Guard version. Naturally the S 600 Guard is
also equipped with the technical innovations that have made the
Mercedes-Benz S-Class the benchmark for the entire field of car
development, and the world's best-selling luxury saloon. The S 600 Guard is
powered by a twelve-cylinder biturbo
engine developing 380 kW (517 hp). It provides highest protection to level
Mercedes-Benz S 600 Pullman Guard
The S 600 Pullman Guard continues the tradition of Mercedes-Benz state
limousines, and treats it occupants to generous spaciousness and
outstanding comfort. This interior spaciousness is ensured by a further,
115-centimetre increase in the wheelbase compared to the long-wheelbase
version of the S Class with special protection, to 4315 millimetres. The
state limousine also has a raised roof section at the rear for even easier
access and more headroom. Four passengers can be seated behind a partition
in the rear, on comfortable, opposing seats in line with Pullman tradition.
This allows plenty of space for confidential discussions. All the important
communication and entertainment functions are on board as well. The Pullman
is likewise powered by the silky-smooth twelve-cylinder biturbo engine with a cubic capacity of 5513 cc,
which develops 380 kW (517 hp) and an impressive torque of 830 Nm. The S
600 Pullman Guard has highest protection to level VR6/VR7.
The Mercedes-Benz E-Guard models are available in three engine variants.
The six-cylinder diesel unit in the E 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Guard develops
195 kW (265 hp) and 620 newton metres of torque. The V6 petrol engine in
the E 350 Guard has an output of 200 kW (272 hp). The most powerful variant
is the 5.5-litre V8 in the E 500 Guard, which develops 285 kW (388 hp).
Because of the run-flat tyres which are standard for all E-Guard models,
their top speed is limited to 240 km/h.
All E-Guard models have high protection to level VR4. Their occupants enjoy
the same generous spaciousness and high ride comfort as in the standard
Mercedes-Benz G 500 Guard
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is also available in a special-protection
version. The G 500 Guard is equipped with a 5.5-litre V8 engine and highest
protection to VR6 or VR7. The history of Guard vehicles: Mercedes passenger

Texas Armoring Corporation (TAC), was tired of customers asking if his
company's bullet-resistant glass in its armored cars actually resisted
bullets. So the CEO asked his employee to shoot at him with an AK-47. It's

Maybach 62 Test Drive (And Ride!) with Chris Moran
An in-depth review of the 2005 Maybach 62 with Chris Moran
Maybach was one of the world's most exquisite nameplates in the 1920s and
'30s. The original company was founded by Karl Maybach — the son of
Wilhelm Maybach, who developed the first Mercedes.
Some people were surprised when Maybachs returned in the form of two
closely related, all-new ultraluxury sedans. Each posh sedan is filled with
nearly every sort of comfort and convenience feature offered in a motorcar.
Ostensibly a product of DaimlerChrysler, Mercedes-Benz's parent company,
the modern-day Maybach is actually considered a make of its own.
Maybachs come in two sizes: the regular Type 57 and the extended-length
Type 62. Each model designation indicates the car's length in meters: 5.73
for the Type 57 and 6.17 for the Type 62. Special features include
electronic braking and an Airmatic Dual Control air suspension.
A rearview parking-assist camera is available in the 2005 model. Standard
equipment now includes Robbe & Berking beverage flutes and a handcrafted
Dunhill Collection umbrella. Standard Sirius Satellite Radio includes a
Only one or two Maybachs per day are built at a state-of-the-art facility
in Germany. Mercedes-Benz dealers must sign separate agreements to sell
According to the manufacturer, Maybach styling balances classic and
avant-garde features. The doors, hood and fenders are made of aluminum.
Maybach says a primary goal was to deliver an "entirely new definition of
Twelve body colors are available, and two-tone paint schemes may be
specified. Bi-xenon headlights are standard. The regular-size Type 57 is
225.3 inches long overall, uses a 133.5-inch wheelbase and rides on 19-inch
tires. A standard power-closing feature pulls the door shut from the first
As many as 100 items inside the Maybach are trimmed with exotic woods.
Buyers can mix options with the immense standard-equipment list in numerous
combinations. Available accessories include a luggage set, a sterling
silver champagne goblet, a humidor, a golf bag and a fluffy travel rug.
Buyers may choose from six Grand Nappa leather colors and three types of
wood. All four standard seats are heated, and active seat ventilation is
Occupants can luxuriate in reclining rear seats. A television with a
9.5-inch TFT flat screen includes a DVD player. Interior features also
include four-zone climate control with two air-conditioning units, a
refrigerated compartment, a cordless phone with two handsets and a
21-speaker Bose Dolby sound system. Each sedan also has the Tele Aid
emergency communication system and the Comand integrated control system,
which are available for Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
Under the Hood
Breathing with the assistance of twin turbochargers, the 5.5-liter V-12 produces 550 horsepower and 663
pounds-feet of torque. It teams with a five-speed-automatic transmission.
Maybach claims the Type 57 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 5.2
Ten airbags, including two adaptive front airbags, four side-impact
airbags, and front and rear side curtain-type airbags, are installed.
