The whole world cares about India’s PM, and the car that drives him is of the utmost importance. According to reports, it is clear that PM Modi switches to the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Guard as an upgrade from Range Rover Sentinel, Toyota Land Cruiser and BMW 7 series Security Edition.
As per the reported information, the car comes with the highest ever VR10 level protection in the production car. Mercedes-Maybach S650 guard gets an Explosive Resistant Vehicle (ERV) 2010 ratings, which can withstand protection from a 15kg TNT explosion from a distance of two meters. Not only this, but the car also gets polycarbonate secure windows that can take bullets without causing any damage to occupants. The vehicle also gets armored protected lower body to withstand the direct explosion.
The material of the fuel tank of the Mercedes-Maybach S650 guard is the same that Boeing uses for its AH-64 Apache tank attack helicopters. It gets coated with a unique material that seals the hole automatically after hit. In case of gas attacks, the cabin has provisions to supply separate air to occupants inside.
The car is powered by a 6.0-litre twin-turbo V12 engine that churns out around 512hp and 900Nm of peak torque, mated with a seven-speed torque converter powering to rear wheels. It’s S-class, so we presume it has all the comfort features that a luxury S-class comes equipped with. To read more about the features and technology of S-class, please click here.
