Measuring 6.5 m in length, 1.0 m longer than the standard Maybach S-class, with a wheelbase of 4.4 m and height of 1.6 m, the Pullman Guard has been designed to protect head of states and features a unique body shell made from special steel integrated between the body structure and outer skin.
As well as being equipped with polycarbonate windows and a steel bulkhead behind the rear window, the Pullman Guard also uses reinforced armoured floor covers and special armed body components to protect against splinters. Additional safety items include flashing lights, sirens, emergency starter battery, two-way radios and external communication devices (loudspeaker and microphone).
Like the standard model, the Pullman Guard uses a 6.0-litre biturbo V12 developing 390 kW and 830 N.m of torque, but thanks to the added armour, which sees it tipping scales at 5.1 tons, top speed is electronically limited to 160 km/h.
Inside, the Pullman Guard offers the same level of luxury as the unguarded model, with special kinetic adjustable electrically reclining leather seats, electric partition between the front and rear, and a 15.7-inch screen in front of the partition, that can also be extended.
Delivery is slated for the second half of next year with prices in Germany starting at €1.4-million (R21.4-million).
