Mercedes-Benz Rolls Out New Head of State Limo

Posted on March 7, 2007 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

STUTTGART, GERMANY — Monarchs and heads of state — or those with bank accounts approaching monarchical levels — will soon be able to step into the latest Mercedes-Benz limo, the S600 Guard Pullman, a behemoth that puts a premium on personal protection.

The new armored Pullman limousine is based on the long version of the S600 with a "substantially extended wheelbase length," said the German automaker. Among its unique selling points: Its armor resists military-standard small-arms projectiles and provides protection against fragments from hand grenades and other explosive devices. Standard features include run-flat tires, a self-sealing fuel tank, and a fire-extinguishing system.

The Pullman is powered by a 12-cylinder biturbo engine with a displacement of 5,513 cc and an output of 517 horsepower. The automaker said options include a choice of paint finishes, leathers, and woods. "Even the most unusual of customer requests can be met," Mercedes-Benz said in a statement. The limo is designed to hold four passengers in the rear and has a rear entrance with increased headroom.
