Already a big player on the civilian armored cars market, Mercedes-Benz unleashes the M-Class Guard. Built from the ground up as an armored vehicle, the M-Class Guard will offer great protection without sacrificing any comfort or luxury the normal version has.
This mobile fortress will stand strong against pistol calibers up to .375 Magnum or .44 Magnum. A polycarbonate layer will make sure the passengers are safe from glass shards. It will even shrug off a hand grenade, should your assailants sport such hardware.
But if you find yourself in such a situation, you will not be keeping still and enjoying a glass of wine while bullets fly at you. No, you will do your best to get away. And you be able to do so even on flat tires. The M-Class Guard will do 80km/h for at least 30km with absolutely no air in the tires.
Customers will be able to choose from two models. The ML350 BlueTEC Guard uses a 3.0 liter V6 turbodiesel engine that will give 258hp, and it will leave you 105.050 euro short. The ML500 Guard comes with a more powerful 4.6 liter V8 gasoline engine that will produce 408hp and will cost 118.650 euro.
