The Mercedes-Benz S-Class Pullman has been spied for the first time and it seems it was an armored variant.
The vehicle was spotted by a BILD reader in front of Brabus' factory in Bottrop, Germany and apparently it was the V12-powered S600 version. It will allegedly be 6.4 meters (252 inches) long and the armored version seen here will tip the scales at 5,300 kg (11,684 lbs). It will be able to withstand continuous fire, hand grenades and explosions thanks to its armored steel body panels as well as the other changes normally found in such a niche vehicle.
The armored Mercedes-Benz S-Class Pullman will probably have a 2+2+2 seating layout and will reportedly carry a starting price of 920,000 EUR (about 1.27M USD / 757,300 GBP). It should come out sometime in 2015 taking into account the extra-long wheelbase Maybach is expected in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show with a wheelbase stretched by 20cm compared to the current long-wheelbase S-Class.
