As a result, heads of state and other individuals at particular risk have a highly exclusive vehicle at their disposal. The first customer vehicles will be delivered in the second half of 2017.

The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Pullman Guard provides complete protection of protection class VR9 (in transparent and non-transparent areas) and is certified for blast resistance in accordance with Directive ERV 2010. Its protection concept is based on that of the Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard. The Pullman Guard has been designed and developed together with the non-special-protection Pullman and provides the same interior dimensions as the latter.

The protection concept has been adapted to the special circumstances of the 6.50-metre-long saloon. With this in mind, the armouring in the rear underscores the special, private character of chauffeur-driven limousines: it is not the rear window that is armoured, but rather a steel bulkhead positioned behind the seats which secures the head area of the passengers. The kerb weight of the Pullman Guard is 5.1 tonnes, while its gross vehicle weight is 5.6 tonnes. From the outside, the special protection equipment is barely discernible, like on all S-Class Guard models. This comes courtesy of the dark-tinted windows in the passenger compartment, for example.

Maximum comfort is provided by the power-assisted opening and closing feature of the rear doors. An electric motor increases the manual force applied. As a result, the large and, due to their armouring, heavy doors are convenient to open and close. The windows are hydraulically opened - the current Pullman builds a technical bridge here to what is perhaps the most famous Pullman in history: the car from the 100 model series dating back to 1965.

The armouring of the Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Pullman Guard follows the design principle of integrated protection based on many years of Mercedes-Benz experience in building special-protection vehicles. The key advantages are:
  • Outstanding strength and stability thanks to specific reinforcement of the basic structure integrated into the production of the body shell.
  • The high level of comfort is preserved by sophisticated integration and intelligent overlapping of all protective elements.
Already at the body shell stage, protective components of special steel are integrated into the cavities between the body structure and the outer skin. Special aramid and PE components provide additional splinter protection. Intelligent overlapping systems at particularly critical points provide comprehensive ballistic protection.

The glass areas are an essential part of the protective concept. They are coated with polycarbonate on the inside for splinter protection, and have outstanding optical characteristics thanks to their laminated structure. The glazing is of special significance for safety and particular attention has been paid to it in terms of the choice of material and thickness.

The interaction between all the components provides the occupants with a highly effective protected space, which not only includes ballistic protection, but also comprehensive protection against explosive devices. With its sophisticated and strong protective system, the new S 600 Pullman Guard has met all the personal protection requirements of the relevant authorities in Germany, and is comprehensively certified in accordance with resistance class VR9 (pursuant to BRV 2009, version 2).

As far as blasts are concerned, the Pullman Guard fulfils ERV 2010. Floor armouring covers relevant areas of the underbody and as such continues the unique protection technology of the S-Class Guard and the Mercedes-Maybach Guard.
