2011 Maybach Guard is ready to protect you wherever you go

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 10, 2011

An armored luxurious limousine from famous carmaker Maybach? Yes, Maybach is introducing a fortressed yet comfortably luxurious Maybach Guard that still offers the performance and individualization level typical of Maybach vehicles. Derived from the Maybach 62, Maybach Guard also features an array of integrated safety systems in response to the needs of businesspeople and high-ranking government officials.

For instance, Maybach engineers integrated into the body shell of the vehicle a special armor made from highly specialized steel and high-tech Kevlar. This composition renders the armor to be lightweight yet almost impenetrable. Because of its light nature, the armor added only 406 kg to the overall weight of the Maybach Guard, sans any compromise on the handling system and on the performance of the vehicle.

Since the base of the Maybach Guard was designed for the extra weight, there was no need to implement tweaks on the drive train, suspension and the braking system. In fact, the Maybach Guard is the only armored car that could accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 5.7 seconds and achieve a top speed of 250 km/h. Interestingly, the integration of armor has been done so flawlessly that it has become almost impossible to distinguish a Maybach Guard from a typical Maybach 62 saloon.

Likewise, this special armor has been certified by independent state bodies that usually conduct on-the-spot quality control checks and could immediately withdraw their certification if needed.

Once the other special protective features have been integrated into the Maybach Guard, this armored limousine is transferred to a standard assembly room in the carmaker’s production site in Sindelfingen, where it will be crafted according to the highest standards of the individualization process. In fact, the Maybach Guard is available with almost the same standard and optional features as on the Maybach 62.

Maybach Guard. A high level of protection encapsulated in luxurious curves

Based on the Maybach 62, the armoured Maybach Guard offers similar performance and possibilities of customization available on the other Maybach saloons.

March 1st 2011 – Comfort, individualization, luxury and a very high level of safety. These requirements are satisfied to the letter on the Maybach Guard, the luxurious armoured limousine realized with integrated safety systems by the German engineers in Sindelfingen.

Responding to the needs of businessmen and Heads of State around the world, the protection offered is absolutely peerless and discreet: even to a specialist eye it is almost impossible to distinguish a Maybach Guard from the regular Maybach 62 saloon. When it comes to the performance, the German engineers have surpassed themselves: a special armour - made of highly specialized steel and high-tech Kevlar – is integrated in the body shell and thanks to its lightness, the weight of the vehicle is raised by only 406 kg, with no effects on the handling system.

In fact, since the base of the Maybach Guard was already de-signed for the extra weight of the vehicle, no changes have been made to the drive train, suspension or breaking-system and the car handles effortlessly at all times. Furthermore, the Maybach Guard is the only armoured car in the world able to reach a top speed of 250 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.7 seconds. To guarantee effectiveness the armour is certified by independent state bodies which carry out on-the-spot quality control checks and can immediately revoke their certification.

After the integration of the other special protective features, the vehicle moves onto the standard assembly room in the Sindelfingen production plant, where masters of craftsmanship dedicate all their skills to ensure the highest standard in the individualization process, offering almost the same range of standard and optional features available on the Maybach 62 model, ensuring this way the same luxurious environment that passengers are used to enjoy on a Maybach.
