These include opaque roller blinds all-round in the rear, heated windscreen and side windows, a panic alarm system, a fire extinguisher system with automatic activation, an emergency fresh air system that protects occupants from the ingress of smoke or irritant gases, hydraulic power for the side windows and LED reading lamps in the rear.
The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard is powered by a 6.0-litre twin-turbo V12 petrol engine producing 523 BHP @ 4,900-5,300 rpm and 830 Nm of torque @ 1,900-4,000 rpm. The engine is mated to a 7G-Tronic automatic transmission. The car has a claimed 0-100 kph time of 7.9 seconds and a top speed of 190 kph.
