Ashwin Ram

Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.

First commercial armoured sedan to have VR9 ballistic protection.

The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard is being showcased at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The model was presented at the Auto Expo 2016 in Greater Noida, and launches in India on March 8.

The S 600 Guard is powered by a 6.0-litre twin-turbo V12 petrol engine that produces 530 hp (390 kW) and 830 Nm of torque. The motor is mated to a 7G-TRONIC 7-speed automatic transmission. The top speed of the sedan is limited to 210 km/h for safety.

The exterior has the ballistic protection materials integrated into the body panels in such a way that the car appears highly similar to the standard version, from outside as well as the inside.

The braking system has been upgraded with larger rotors and six-piston calipers, to compensate for the added weight. The air suspension has also been reinforced to maintain the smooth ride quality of the regular variant.
