80 Years of Ultimate Protection By Mercedes-Benz Guard Models

For more than 80 years, Mercedes-Benz has been providing special protection cars in the world. It was Daimler-Benz who is the first car manufacturer to bring protected vehicles in 1928. Since then, the company has been making vehicles that has been tailored with protective elements made from aramid fiber and special steel for those who need maximum protection from gunfires and other violent acts.

The flagship model of the Mercedes-Benz Guard is the S 600 Pullman Guard, a limousine with luxurious interior and huge space. Along with the other armored vehicle models, the limousine’s protection is not visible on the outside and not just installed in an already manufactured vehicle, it is integrated in the body shell at the start of the production. This process makes the vehicles to adapt well to the heavier weight brought by the protective materials.

Some of the models for the Mercedes Benz Guard are the Mercedes-Benz S Guard, Mercedes-Benz E-Guard and the Mercedes-Benz G 500 Guard, all of which are engineered to provide high-protection at the VR4 level. These cars resist large-caliber revolver ammunition and protect passengers against increasing street crimes and drug-related violence. The VR6/VR7 protection levels provides higher protection for those threatened by terrorist attacks as the armor is designed to resist military weapons and hand grenades and other explosives.

The guard models not only protect the occupants from criminal acts by materials resistant of gun fire and explosives, the cars also offer absolute comfort and luxury by having all the components of the normal cars integrated in the vehicle.
