Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard

Driving in absolute style and security is a premium that most of us could never afford.  Luckily most of us don’t have to dodge assault rifle fire or IEDs on our way to work. But for those of us who do, and who can afford to take the finest possible precautions, there’s the Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard.

The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard is the first car to receive the VR10 protection rating, which indicates enough protective power to withstand hardened steel core bullets from any assault weapon, and it also boasts a ERV 2o10 certification for protection against explosions – intentional and otherwise. And even though it can take the punishment of a tank, on the inside it’s all luxury, with surround sound, cabin fragrance system, “executive”-style seating in the rear, and much more.

If you’ve got at least half a million to drop on a car, consult your local Mercedes dealer and I’m sure they can point you in the right direction. But if all you want to do is read about the Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard and imagine your life as an important target for assassins, check out Car and Driver‘s article on the car right here.
