The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 is an already impressive luxury limousine in its own right, but this special version -- the S 600 Guard -- is designed with extra safety and protective features that offer the highest degree of ballistic protection you'll ever see in a civilian vehicle.

This vehicle features windows and bodywork capable of handling hardened steel bullets fired from assault rifles. The vehicle features a reinforced structure that is integrated into the bodyshell for added protection. Steel components stuffed into the cavities make for added security.

With its suite of safety and protective features, there's no question that the Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard is targeted towards heads of state, business leaders or anyone who has reason to believe that somebody might consider aiming bullets or bombs in their direction.
