Thanks to integrated special protection, Mercedes-Benz Guard, the S-Class is ideally prepared to handle extreme situations. To achieve this, all safety components, such as the electronic control systems, brakes and suspension, have been perfectly coordinated with the requirements generated by the additional weight of the S-Guard. And it goes without saying that every Mercedes-Benz Guard model offers the luxury you are accustomed to from the S-Class.
Three models of the ex factory armoured luxury saloons are available: the S 600 Guard, the new S 600 Pullman Guard and the new S 420 CDI Guard with high-torque diesel engine.
The S 600 passenger cell has been radically redesigned and strengthened using highly effective protective components – particularly at those points subsequently no longer accessible. From the vehicle interior right to the outer skin of the body, a host of safety components have been networked to form a superbly effective protection system. Inconspicuous from the outside, this ingenious safety structure is integrated ex factory and includes steel, aramid and special-purpose glass.
The new S 600 Pullman Guard with extended wheelbase is a saloon designed for government use and accordingly meets the highest standards of safety. The extra-high roof and integrated office provides the perfect blend of superb protection and sheer luxury.
The benefits of a high-torque diesel engine were applied for the first time in an ex factory armoured luxury saloon in September 2007. In the S 420 CDI Guard, this is expressed by the cultured power of a V8 CDI engine, which is capable of transporting all passengers out of a danger zone even in emergency situations.
