Mercedes-Maybach S600 Guard: Benz lobs bomb-proof limo

Found this article very interesting....
There’s an old saying about how some cars are mechanically “bulletproof”. But in the case of the car you see here, that’s a literalism. The new Mercedes-Maybach S600 Guard armoured car is the most bomb- and gun-proof car civilians can buy, according to its German maker.

It’s the new pinnacle of Mercedes-Benz’s Guard range, which also comprises the G500 Guard, GLE Guard and S-Class Guard, all successors of cars such as the 1928 Nurburg 460 and the 1960s Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman models. The newest member of the growing Mercedes-Maybach family has attained the highest ballistic protection level for non-military vehicles, VR10. This means that the bodywork and windows must be able to withstand hardened steel core bullets fired from an assault rifle.
