The Mercedes-Maybach S600 luxury limo just got tougher with a new armored version ocalled the “Guard” edition.
According to Mercedes, the Maybach Guard is the first civilian vehicle to be certified with VR10-level ballistics protection, which means the Maybach’s body and windows are designed to withstand hardened-steel-core bullets fired from assault rifles.
And that’s exactly what they did. The company published a photo of a bullet-riddled test car this week, complete with markers to identify each bullet hole.
It’s the latest addition to Mercedes’ Guard line of armored models, which also includes offerings from the S-Class, G-Class, and GLE-Class with all of the Maybach Guard’s safety features are integrated into the car itself.
