Armored Mercedes Maybach 57S developed using Light composite.
This composite is 63% lighter than conventional ballistic steel.
The process was done with a goal of maintaining the interior and exterior details of the vehicle;
upon completion the armored vehicle is indistinguishable from the OEM vehicle.
Ultra-light composite armored package was used for the
Maybach and took approximately 7 weeks from start to completion.
The Maybach will accommodate a driver and one passenger in the front and two passengers in the back.
The Maybach is just another of the unique projects that has been tasked with developing.
Our team is very specialized; they are experts in what they do.
They face numerous challenges combining the protection required while not losing the integrity,
Design and performance elements of the vehicles.
As we receive more and more requests for both innovative personal
security as well as SWAT and law enforcement vehicles,
Our dedicated team is tasked with finding solutions to meet their needs.
The line of Rapid Deployment Vehicles (RDV) is NATO tested and recommended.
If there’s one thing you need to know about the new Mercedes-Maybach 57 S Guard it’s this:
It’s the first vehicle to be certified with the highest ballistic protection level (VR 10) for civilian vehicles.
In other words, these guidelines specify the big sedan’s bodywork and windows can
withstand bullets fired from a freaking assault rifle.
Rocket propelled grenades?
You’re covered.Because you might have enemies out there that you may or may not know about.
You can never be too careful these days.
The sedan’s body shell is composed of special steel that’s integrated into the cavities
between the body structure and the outer skin.
windows are coated with poly carbonate on the inside for splinter protection.
Mercedes have declared its most recent vehicle proposed to keep heads of state, royals, and oligarchs free from gunfire wounds and other dreadful weapons-related injuries: the Mercedes-Maybach protected. In light of the super rich Maybach S600, the vehicle meets VR10 insurance norms as indicated by Directive BRV 2009 Version 2, which is a staggeringly long approach to say this unbelievably long vehicle shields its tenants from steel-center ammunition discharged from a strike rifle.
Take note of that this Maybach is particular from the typical old’ S600 Guard declared several years prior, with eight inches of extra wheelbase and all the additional lavish elements one would expect of a Maybach. While the greater part of the auto’s gear isn’t spelled out in Mercedes’ discharge—and the world’s first class can most likely request whatever their heart wants. You can hope to discover sections of land of fine cowhide, leaning back and kneading back seats, and some toss cushions, among the various joys that push the non-defensively covered Maybach’s cost past $200,000. Mercedes do say the auto has “creative voice enhancement,” which we interpret as meaning it has some external amplifier that permits you to ask that individuals quit shooting at you, please.
In many autos with adjustable suspension settings the primary thing I do is change to Sports mode. In any case, not in the new Mercedes-Maybach armor. Gracious, I attempted it, and it’s not awful, but rather the Comfort setting is vastly improved. More suitable. The Maybach is an extravagance limousine, and in Comfort mode, it rides like one. Indeed, it may be the best-riding auto on the planet at this moment, conceivably better, even, than the Rolls-Royce Phantom. However, I’d need to drive them consecutive over similar streets before making an official call.
The Mercedes-Maybach armored huge, powerful, and costs lots of cash. You can bandy about the shape—both the Rolls-Royce Phantom and the Bentley Mulsanne are undeniably more magnetic and unmistakable outlines than the Maybach’s supersized S-Class image—yet in absolutely practical terms the huge daddy Mercedes is apparently the more refined auto.
In the engine is an incredible 6.0-liter, twin-turbo V-12, a detuned rendition of the M275 AMG motor that conveys 523 hp and 612 lb-ft and is coordinated to a delightfully adjusted seven-speed programmed. Like all awesome V-12s, the motor is turbine-smooth directly through the rev extend, the twin-turbos conveying most extreme torque from only 1,900 rpm. For the individuals who mind, the Maybach armored snails 60 mph in 4.8 seconds, and the quarter-mile in 13.2 seconds at 110.9 mph, which means it’s snappier than a Bentley Mulsanne Speed. It’s likewise eight-tenths of a second speedier around our figure eight than the lumbering Bentley.
Mercedes offer the decision of Comfort and Sport transmission modes, and in Comfort, the Maybach will overflow far from a halt in the second apparatus, much the same as Benzes consistently used to. Changing to Sports mode makes the tranny more ready and responsive; more than you require it to be in the ‘burbs, yet ideal for quickly excellent transport along a turning two path. There are controlling wheel paddles on the off chance that you need to swap proportions yourself, yet in truth they are pointless. Begin hustling the Maybach and the transmission conveys consummately planned; rev-coordinated downshifts on the section into corners
It was amid an active, continuous keep running along Route 198, a portion of which we use as our Best Driver’s Car Test street, that the Maybach made its stamp. I cleared out the suspension in Comfort and wondered about the nature of the ride, the mastery of the body control, and the amazing pace at which the very nearly 18-foot, 5,308-pound limousine waltzed easily down this requesting stretch of the landing area. The Maybach’s attitude through the swoops and scopes, protuberances and hollows helped me to remember an old Series III Jaguar XJ12—short, apparently, all the rubbery horizontal consistency in the suspension that made the Jag fascinating through fast sweepers. There was an active class to it all that I understood with a jar is presently absent from a significant number of today’s over-tired and rigidly damped current extravagance autos, autos that ought to presumably more efficiently be called where cars. The Maybach’s blend of speed and peacefulness is one of a kind.
Perhaps this is on account of I happened to drive the Maybach from L.A. to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, where enormous, sparkling Duesenbergs and Isotta Fraschinis and Packards and Hispano-Suizas reviewed an overlaid period of car overabundance. However I’ve arrived at a conclusion that “extravagance” has turned into a barbarously degraded term in the cutting edge car vocabulary. There are quick autos, great vehicles, forcing cars, snappy autos, and exceptional taking care of automobiles, a large number of them eminently outlined and built and conveyed a weighty sticker price that puts them past the compass of the average buyer. However, that doesn’t mean they are rich. It implies they are costly.
Powered by a 6.75-liter V-12 with 75 percent of its torque conveyed at only 1,000 rpm, the Phantom EWB is not precisely light on its feet, but rather never leaves the impression of coming up short on steam. Everything about the model, from its definitive nearness to the “men of their word’s club” style of its interior shouts British extravagance.
Less expensive cars were also developed, such as the Volkswagen prototypes built in Stuttgart with Porsche. The reputation for quality and reliability has long been associated with the Mercedes-Benz name. J.D. Power noted its increased focus on costs and volume, making it a benchmark for the industry average for initial quality in 2005
A significant portion of us will never observe a Mercedes-Maybach armored out and about since the extraordinary model may be fabricated to arrange. Incredibly costly and uncommon, however offering single interior space and arrangements, the standard ought to be sufficient to meet the requests of even the showiest hot shots out there, not due to its high cost but rather additionally in light of the model’s picture. I’m not so much beyond any doubt that the new ultra-extravagance limousine will oust the Rolls-Royce Rolls-Royce Phantom EWP on deals. On the other hand, less than 3,000 units of the Mercedes-Benz 600 “Grosser Mercedes” were sold somewhere around 1965 and 1981, yet that model didn’t neglect to leave a stamp in car history.
