Dear Mr. President, this is your new 2015 Mercedes-Benz S600 Guard based on the new S-Class! According to Mercedes-Benz, this is the first vehicle certified for highest ballistic protection in resistance class VR9. What’s more interesting is that the S600 Guard looks just like the standard model, featuring the LED High Performance headlamps and the same LED rear lights as well as the same emphatic design lines.
Inside, there is plenty of space and for the first time the S600 Guard is available as a 4-seater and as a 5-seater. Mercedes-Benz says that its new armoured sedan comes with the Chauffeur package, which has a chauffeur position for the front passenger seat, Executive seat in the rear on the front passenger, Rear Seat Comfort package which brings multicontour outer rear seats, seat heating Plus and Energizing massage function.
Moreover, the S600 Guard features the Rear Pre-Safe package with illuminated belt buckle extenders, Pre-Safe belt tensioners and beltbags for the outer rear seats, First-Class rear suite with a Business console, Business telephony, Warmth Comfort package and Air-Balance Package.
As an option, Mercedes-Benz offers a rear reading lamp with LED lights. Under the hood, there is the 6.0-liter V12 engine found on the standard model that generates 530 hp (290 kW) and 830 Nm of torque. The engine is bolted to a 7G-Tronic transmission and for weight reasons the top speed is electronically limited at 210 km/h or 130 mph.
Furthermore, the S600 Guard comes with reinforced and redimensioned suspension components, ESP, ASR, Airmatic air suspension with variable damper control but also with larger 6-piston brake calipers and larger brake discs. The wheels are wrapped as standard in Michelin PAX run-flat tyres and the vehicle features an additional tyre pressure monitoring system which allows it to escape from the danger zone up to a distance of 30 km (18.6 miles) even with damaged tyres.
As an option, Mercedes-Benz offers the Driver Assitance Package Plus, which includes assistance systems such as DISTRONIC PLUS with Stop&Go Pilot, BAS PLUS Brake, Active Blind Spot Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist, PRE-SAFE® Brake with pedestrian recognition and ESP, and an electric parking brake.
Also as an option we have the Night View Assist Plus, LED Intelligent Light System and a 360 degrees camera. And this is not all because Mercedes-Benz offers opaque roller blinds all-round in the rear, heated windscreen and side windows, easily operated panic alarm system, fire extinguisher system with automatic activation, emergency fresh air system protecting occupants from the ingress of smoke or irritant gases, hydraulic power for the heavy side windows, gimbal LED reading lamps in the rear and a special cooling compartment in the rear.
