The have developed an armored version of the latest S-Class capable of protecting its occupants against a wide selection of attacks. It’s heavy and it’s expensive, but it’s a safe (literally) bet for those who hang out in war zones.
The Price Of the new Mercedes Benz
We hope your enemies are taking a long vacation this summer, because German magazine Stern learned the S680 Guard takes about 51 days to build. Pricing starts at roughly 500,000 euros (nearly $594,000). The list of extra-cost options includes a trunk-mounted fridge that can be accessed from the cabin, a built-in fire extinguisher, and an air filtration system that keeps smoke, tear gas, or whatever substance gets pelted in your direction out of the cabin.
Dictators, druglords, and other at-risk individuals who want an armored Mercedes-Benz have other options to choose from; the market is stunningly large. German tuner Brabus introduced an armored G-Class that offers VR6 ballistic protection in 2020. It’s not quite as safe as the S680, but it can nonetheless survive a grenade attack.
