    Mercedes reveals Bulletproof Mercedes S600 Guard
    Car  /  Coupe
    At a glance,  Mercedes S600 Guard looks identical to a normal S-Class. Essentially, it's a bullet- and bomb-proof Mercedes. It's based on the latest generation of Mercedes S-Class, with a rather delightful 6.0-litre V12 engine up front developing an even more lovely 525bhp and 612lb ft of torque.  This car's top speed is 130mph, 25mph shy of the limited S600.  But, of course, there is a lot of security on board. The bodyshell has had protective steel integrated between the structure and outer skin, there's ‘splinter' protection, and thick glass coated with polycarbonate on the inside. It rides on Michelin PAX run-flat tyres which can travel up to a distance of 19 miles even when damaged.
    Then there's armour covering the entire underbody for the first time, providing extensive protection against subterranean IEDS. All in, this new S600 Guard has been certified for the highest level of ballistic protection, which is VR9.
    VR9, if you're wondering, means armour designed to resist rifle-fire from military weapons, a velocity twice that of handgun bullets, and resistance to splinters from hand grenades and explosive charges.
    Other features include AIRMATC suspension, 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, Night View Assist Plus, LED Intelligent Light System, 360° camera. The Guard treatment also adds a panic alarm system, automatic fire extinguisher, and fresh air system.
