Mercedes-Benz S600 Guard Pullman Limousine

German carmaker Mercedes-Benz has developed the S 600 Pullman Guard, a model with integrated Highest Protection. Like the well-known luxurious and spacious open-plan Pullman railway coaches after which it is made, the new S 600 Pullman Guard treats its occupants to a travelling environment characterized by generous accommodation and the highest comfort. The technical basis for the new Pullman limousine is provided by the S 600 Pullman Guard, the top of the Mercedes-Benz Guard range. The 12-cylinder bi-turbo engine with a 5513 CCM displacement is capable of developing 517 horsepower and 830 Nm of torque. The suspension and the basic structure of the vehicle have been modified as it would be impossible to guarantee the long-term overall stability of the vehicle with its extra-long wheelbase if the lengthening process consisted of simply inserting an additional body section. Four passengers can be accommodated in the rear compartment behind the partition in comfortable seats whose face-to-face arrangement recalls the great Pullman tradition. In order to ensure that the vehicle offers outstanding protection, specialists with many years of experience in this field apply the principle of integrated special protection to the Pullman limousine. A further advantage of integrated special protection is that the protective features actually reinforce the body structure rather than exerting extra strain. All Mercedes-Benz Guard models display the same outstanding ride comfort and effortlessly superior handling as their series-production counterparts. The chassis is also designed to provide hallmark Mercedes ride comfort despite the extra weight. As the inventor of the motor car, the oldest automaker in the world has always felt a special obligation to drive forward the development of automotive technology at the highest level and to keep on setting new standards for the industry.
