the new armored S-Class

Mercedes has quietly unveiled the new S 680 Guard, an armored version of the new S-Class with specific bulletproof materials.

For the very specific protection needs of VIP personalities, the German manufacturer has a range called Mercedes Guard, made up of large sedans and SUVs reinforced to resist an attack by bullets, or with explosives (such as a grenade jet ) for example. In the utmost discretion, Mercedes has lifted the veil on the new Mercedes S 680 Guard, the armored version of the new S-Class, in its extended wheelbase Limousine version.

With its bodywork and reinforced windows, the new S 680 Guard meets the “VR10” resistance standard, i.e. the highest level of protection against bullets and explosions.

Michelin has also equipped the model with specific tires, allowing you to continue driving for 30 km after a puncture.
