See The New Mercedes-Benz Sedan That Can Ward Off Bullets

Mercedes-Benz’s latest luxury vehicle is in a resistance class by itself.
The company unveiled its ultra-tough S600 Guard sedan, which has a fully bulletproof body and can withstand great impact — but judging from the outside, it looks like a normal Mercedes sedan.

The car’s armor is designed to resist rifle fire from military weapons, which has a velocity almost twice that of handgun bullets, as well as resist splinters from hand grenades and explosive charges, according to the company.

But this new model comes with built-in protective elements, including a layer of steel between the outer shell and the inner body and polycarbonate-coated glass to absorb the impact of a speeding bullet and prevent splintering.


Mercedes-Benz has not announced a price for the tricked-out car but a regular S-600 vehicle starts at $166,000 in the U.S. The car is available for order via Mercedes-Benz’s website.
