Mercedes-Benz S 600 Pullman Guard
Mercedes-Benz S 600 Pullman Guard
There is only one brand that is popular all over the world and that is the Mercedes-Benz S 600 Pullman Guard. Back in the thirties they sold their very first armored car to Emperor Hirohito of Japan. Now one thing about the Pullman is that it is much longer than the regular S-Class. Actually the vehicle is now 45 inches longer and a third row of seats have been added to the new model.
As in any stretch limo the front compartment is separated from the back compartment, with an addition of a partition with the only difference that the roofline of the vehicle has been modified to allow more headroom in the rear compartment. To best describe this vehicle don’t refer to it as a standard stretch limo. The new Pullman has been redesigned at every aspect this is not a converted limo by any means. The Pullman has a B6/B7 level of armor protection which is much higher than other manufactures place on their vehicles. This type of armor will protect anyone inside the car from military gun fire and hand grenade shrapnel. Mercedes-Benz even lists that it will protect against RPG fire. Now as a safety features the Pullman is carrying a self-sealing gas tank which is protected from any gunfire, run flat tires and its own fire extinguisher system.
The Pullman has a 5.5-liter twin-turbo engine V-12 engine that makes at least 510hp with 612lb-ft of torque. It ranges at least 21 feet long but there is no listing of any weight of the vehicle. Maybe considering all the armor protection on the car it is no way near of being considered light.
Listed Price for the Mercedes-Benz S 600 Pullman Guard
The Listed price for the is very substantial considering all the protection and safety it bring to people of importance and high profile government figures. It is listed at $1.4 million dollars which is way more than its competitors. Considering the armor it carries makes perfect sense. This is not a converted vehicle by any means this is a redesigned limo from the ground up.
