The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class W223 has got an armored version of the S680 Guard 4Matic. It was estimated at 547,400 euros, that is, it is twice as expensive as the coolest Mercedes-Maybach S680.
By the way, it was the new Maybach that shared the 6.0-liter 612-horsepower twin-turbo V12 with the Mercedes S680 Guard. Although earlier it was said that no one, except for the Maybach, will receive this engine. The weight of the armored car increased to 4.2 tons, so the maximum speed was reduced from 250 to 190 km / h.
The weight gain was provided by steel and composite armor plates, as well as bullet-proof glass 10 cm thick. The tires are capable of driving 30 km with a puncture. The car itself can withstand shelling with 7.62 mm bullets from a machine gun or a sniper rifle, as well as detonating a hand grenade (VPAM VR10 standard).
Although it looks like an ordinary Mercedes S-Class W223 – only details give out the armored version. And in the salon they did not sacrifice a single gram of comfort – everything is of the highest standard.
