New Delhi: The country’s largest luxury car maker Mercedes-Benz redefined the exclusive and luxurious armored vehicles segment in India, by launching the new Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard. The exquisite Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard is the first civilian vehicle to be certified with the highest ballistic protection level VR10, and is one of the safest luxury spots on wheels in the world. Today, Mercedes-Benz offers the widest range of special protection vehicles catering to the most stringent demand of its high profile customers.
The Mercedes-Benz Guard range in India currently comprises the Mercedes-Maybach and S 600 Guard. The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard was launched by the German Ambassador in India, H.E. Dr. Martin Ney and Roland Folger, Managing Director and CEO, Mercedes Benz India.
Roland Folger, Managing Director and CEO, Mercedes Benz India commented, “Mercedes-Benz’s remains the most trusted brand globally in manufacturing ‘Guard’ vehicles since 1928. It is hence not surprising that most of the global heads of states, top diplomats, business tycoons and celebrities prefer a ‘Guard’ vehicle. We are pleased to introduce the world’s first passenger vehicle certified with the highest ballistic protection level of VR10, in India. The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard is launched in India within 15 days of its international debut. With the introduction of the Mercedes-Maybach Guard, we continue to follow our ‘top of pyramid’ approach for the discerning Indian customers.”
Mr. Folger further elaborated, “In 2015 we completely redefined the highly exclusive luxury sedan segment with the launch of the Mercedes-Maybach. With the introduction of the Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard, we have now created an unmatched offering in the segment and strongly reiterated our ‘technological leadership’ in the field of special protection vehicles. The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard is the pinnacle of luxury motoring coupled with the highest level of safety and security. This super luxury protection
vehicle maintains the exquisite panache associated with the Maybach, coupled with the ground-breaking security features of Mercedes-Benz’s trademark ‘Guard’ range.
The launch of the Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard symbolizes our unsurpassed commitment of giving the best to our customers.”
The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard delivers the highest levels of ballistic and blast protection, available for a non-military vehicle. Simultaneously, it offers unsurpassed levels of spaciousness, ride comfort and on-board luxury features. The rear seats have also been repositioned further back, adding to the sense of privacy.
Part of the protection concept is that, it takes a very keen eye to distinguish the armoured version of the Maybach from its series-produced counterpart. A series of special technical features also ensures that the Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard remains mobile during and also after an attack and is able to exit the danger zone.
The new Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard has been officially certified by the Ballistics Authority and for the first time, meets the very highly stringent requirements for VR10 protection rating. These guidelines specify that the bodywork and windows must be able to withstand hardened steel core bullets fired from an assault rifle. The vehicle also has an ERV 2010 rating (Explosive Resistant Vehicles). After the inspection by Germany’s Federal Office of Criminal Investigation, the vehicle was approved without any constraints.

The robust Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard is an engineering marvel that defines sophisticated aesthetic styling, world-class safety and unmatched driving performance.
