Maybach S600 Pullman transformed into “war tank”
It is the most awaited version for royalty, politicians and businessmen. The “battle tank” version of Mercedes-Maybach S600 Pullman has a VR9 resistance level to bullets, both glass and body, and is also able to resist a grenade explosion only approximately 2 meters away.
This “Guard” version of the Mercedes-Benz, weighting around 5.1 tons and with prices starting at 1.4 million (before tax), arrives in the second half of 2017.
The doors’ opening system requires electric motors due to their weight.
The engine is the same 6.0 V12 biturbo, with 523 hp and 830 Nm of torque, but for safety reasons, due to the increased weight, the maximum speed is electronically limited to 160 km/h.
The Maybach S600 Pullman Guard longer version has a lower resistance than the short version, which is the world’s passenger model with the highest bullet resistance level, VR10.
