There’s only a select number of individuals that can both afford this extended bulletproof Mercedes Maybach and feel the need to purchase such a vehicle. We’re talking about questionable businessmen, world leaders in areas with rougher-than-normal commutes, or Vladimir Putin himself. It’s the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman Guard, and it’s borderline indestructible.
This vehicle is the top of the line version of the S-Class Guard model. For starters it’s armored, meaning firing bullets into this vehicle is going to be an annoyance for its passengers rather than lethal. It’s also nearly 40 inches longer than the other Mercedes-Maybach, allowing the Pullman Guard to hosts four-passenger-seating in the rear, with two seats facing each other. Perfect for hosting private and shady business deals. And since it’s an armored car, it weighs an impressive 11,000 pounds. Due in part to the vehicle’s steel plates on the sides and floor and polycarbonate-backed windows to protect passengers not only from bullets but from explosives as well.
Under the hood is a twin-turbo V12 offering up 530 horsepower and 612 lb-ft of torque. There’s also a set of sirens, flashing lights, two-way radios, emergency starter battery, and a loudspeaker system to boot. This model isn’t cheap either, costing a cool $1.56 million to those who require this enhanced protection when venturing out.
