Armored Mercedes-Maybach Limo Withstands Assault Rifle

Posted on April 18, 2016

The Maybach name returned last year after a brief hiatus as the flagship model of Mercedes' S-Class line instead of a standalone brand.

Now Mercedes has a new armored version of the Maybach called the "Guard" edition.

According to Mercedes, the Maybach Guard is the first civilian vehicle to be certified with VR10-level ballistics protection. 

That means the Maybach's body and windows are designed to withstand hardened-steel-core bullets fired from assault rifles. 

And that's exactly what they did. The company published a photo of a bullet-riddled test car this week, complete with markers to identify each bullet hole.
