Top Gear Audition (08). Mercedes 600
An audition tape made for the Australian Top Gear TV series. Unsuccessful
but enjoyable to put together and I hope fans of old Mercedes will enjoy!
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

Mercedes-Benz S-Class 600 Series Celebration
Mercedes-Benz 600 series - Luciano Pavarotti's 1972 600, Hugh Hefner's 1972
600 Pullman, Pope Paul VI's 1965 600 Pullman Landaulet, and the 1972 600
SWB Sedan .........
Apart from the Pope and governments, famous owners of the 600 include
celebrities such as Coco Chanel, Hugh Hefner, Elizabeth Taylor, John
Lennon, George Harrison, Jay Kay, Aristotle Onassis, Jack Nicholson, Simon
Spies, Ron Wood, Bob Jane, Frank Packer, Elvis Presley, Rowan Atkinson, and
Jeremy Clarkson, Communist leaders include Nicolae Ceauşescu, Josip
Broz-Tito, Fidel Castro, Pol Pot, Enver Hoxha, Leonid Brezhnev, Kim
Il-sung, Kim Jong-Il also owns a landaulet (both seen in the 65th
anniversary parade in Pyongyang on October 10, 2010) and religious leader
Guru Maharaj Ji. African revolutionaries Idi Amin Dada, Jomo Kenyatta and
the former Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos had four 600s including a
Landaulet, a 1981 bulletproof and a six-door version.
The 600 was so heavy that the largest engine of Mercedes at that time, the
6-cylinder 300, was inadequate. Instead a new engine with more than twice
the capacity was specially developed to move the vehicle and its
hydraulically powered amenities, the massive 6.3L V8 "M100" engine with
single overhead camshafts, and Bosch mechanical fuel injection. 1963--1981
The 600's "M-100" engine and hydraulics were fitted to the 300SEL 6.3 model
in 1968, providing the lighter (and more affordable) car with astounding,
for the time, performance, creating the worlds' fastest four-door saloon.
Upon the introduction of the "W116" chassis, a larger version of M-100 was
installed in the Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9 Top Gear Maybach cabriolet Road
