Mercedes-Benz's upmarket counterpart Maybach has announced the availability of a new armored version of its long-wheelbase limousine. The Maybach 62 Guard incorporates 900 lbs of extra armor reinforcement from steel and Kevlar, and is claimed to still be able to accelerate to highway speeds from a standstill in 5.7 seconds and on to an electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph.
Because the Maybach was engineered from the beginning to accommodate the reinforced body panels, the twin-turbo V12 engine, brakes and suspension have required no further modification.
