Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Pullman Guard.
The absolute flagship model.
The absolute flagship model from Mercedes-Maybach with face-to-face seating configuration behind the glass partition is now also available to order as a Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Pullman Guard. As a result, heads of state and other individuals at particular risk have a highly exclusive vehicle at their disposal. The first customer vehicles will be delivered in the second half of 2017.
Certified protection class VR9.
The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Pullman Guard provides complete protection in accordance with protection class VR9 and is certified for blast resistance in accordance with Directive ERV 2010. Its protection concept is based on that of the Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard. The Pullman Guard has been designed and developed together with the non-special-protection Pullman and provides the same interior dimensions as the latter. The kerb weight of the Pullman Guard is 5.1 tonnes, while its gross vehicle weight is 5.6 tonnes.
The protection concept has been adapted to the special circumstances of the 6.50-metre-long saloon. The armouring in the rear underscores the private character of chauffeur-driven limousines: Not the rear window is armoured, but rather a steel bulkhead is positioned behind the seats in the head area. From the outside, the special protection equipment is barely discernible, like on all S-Class Guard models. This comes courtesy of the dark-tinted windows in the passenger compartment, for example.
Pullman Guard: Highly effective protected space.
The interaction between all the components provides the occupants with a highly effective protected space which not only includes ballistic protection but also comprehensive protection against explosive devices. With its sophisticated and strong protective system, the new S 600 Pullman Guard has met all the personal protection requirements of the relevant authorities in Germany and is comprehensively certified in accordance with resistance class VR9.
Already at the body shell stage, protective components of special steel are integrated into the cavities between the body structure and the outer skin. Special aramid and PE components provide additional splinter protection. Intelligent overlapping systems at particularly critical points provide comprehensive ballistic protection.
