First, it is stated that this Mercedes-Maybach S600 Pullman Guard possesses armoured protection which consists of panels with integrated steel protection in its body as well as other critical areas like the top and sides. This complete protection is said to be of the class VR9 which means that it covers both the non-transparent and transparent areas altogether.

This presidential limo is well certified for any all types of blast resistance in accordance with the Directive ERV of 2010. This directive simply prescribes that the armoured limousine will remain unshaken from a 15kg TNT detonation at a 2-meters distance from the armoured car. If such a bomb test is done on an unarmoured car, it will kiss the earth goodbye.
