The Mercdes-Maybach S560 is a special car perfect for presidency which is so close to that of the top world leaders such as Trump or Putin. Now our President Muhammadu Buhari will also take this armor as his official presidential car.

If you are of the opinion that official cars equipped with world class military grades are only used by powerful world leaders, then you would change your perception when you take a look at the armoured luxury ride, which is the Muhammadu Buhari's official presidential car, who just got re-elected as the 16th President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The newly unveiled Mercedes-Maybach S560, just like what he got four years ago from former president Goodluck Jonathan, was customized specifically for the office of the president.


The Maybach sedan is sure used by many other world leaders for its class and suitability

It comes at sixty one million naira ($170,750) for its base price, which is not armoured. So, we expect this one to be super expensive since it is bulletproofed and includes custom-made features such as bulletproof window, anti-puncture inflated tire and ballistic steel plating.

Other added features on the Mercedes-Maybach S560 include:

  • Mercedes-Benz Emergency Call
  • Car-to-X Communication
  • Adaptive Highbeam Assist
  • Active Brake Assist
  • Active Blindspot Assist
  • Evasive Steering Assist
  • Active Lane Keeping Assist

The Mercedes-Maybach S560 (armoured) for the 2019 model year with weight added should be able to accelerate from a standstill of zero to 60mph in just slightly above 5 seconds. It has a generative output of 463 horsepower and comes equipped with a V-8 engine, perfect for a rapid getaway if required.

Despite the incredible job done on its engine, the interior is still elegant and aggressive. You would love the remarkable comfort and attention given to the rear seat. This means the President will easily relax on the Hot-stone-massaging seat made of leather while stretching out. Not just that, he will easily gaze out to the world through the curtains and have feel of the equipped Burmester audio system.
