Personal Fortress: Mercedes-Maybach S600 Pullman Guard

If your net worth is a few million and you’ve made your fair share of enemies throughout the course of it, this might be the car for you. With a little help from Mercedes-Maybach, the Pullman sedan is recreated in the form of the S600 Pullman Guard, which is essentially 5.6 tonnes of high security and intimate luxury.

The car of choice by generations of royal families, heads of state and dignitaries, the limousine-like S-Class car has become synonymous with power, luxury and style. The latest iteration, however, is on a whole new level. This is because this limo isn’t only bulletproof, it’s also bomb-proof, thanks to a whole lot of high-strength steel and heat-resistant aramid components. Its super-thick glass is then coated with polycarbonate, so the whole vehicle conforms to Germany’s protection class VR9 and Directive ERV 2010. Translation: a hell lot of fire power is required to compromise this vehicle.

At the heart of this impenetrable beast lies a twin-turbo V12 engine that will power 530hp and 830Nm of torque; decent numbers considering the car weighs a whopping 5,500kg. However, Mercedes has thoughtfully limited its top speed to reduce the severity of potential collisions, so the car will only ever reach a top speed of 160kph.

Within the S600 Pullman Guard’s imposing demeanour is an extravagantly spacious and luxurious interior, which is now a hallmark of Pullman’s. Standard configuration sees rear face-to-face seating so that passengers can conduct meetings on-the-go. Creature comforts include an electrically operated partition between the rear and driver’s area for discretion, Burmester sound systems and an entirely-furnished leather interior.
