Armored version

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.

I think this isn't original Pullman version prototype but just something from Brabus based on original S 600 Guard. Look at it, it's too long even for Pullman version and I think Pullman will have back doors longer, taken from Maybach version, not standard one....

It will be very interesting to see just how many buyers on the market for a Flying Spur/Ghost/ Phantom Series II would opt for the Maybach-S.

Well it's obviously intended for Governmental/Dignitary use. Garage size would be irrelevant. That said, I too reserved excitement for an ultra-luxurious, bespoke/ lower volume vehicle to challenge the Phantom/ Mulsanne which seemed to be in the works. Now, that may very well may be fact yet such a model would likely arrive during the next generation. That is if MB would dare establish a range above the S (under the MB moniker).

Well,you can basically play table tennis in it. And you will need one hell of a large garage,something like a bunker.

I'm a big Mercedes fan but I'm disappointed with this. Every coachbuilder or armoring company could make a stretched S-Class. Even the previous gen S-class had a factory Pullamn variant with 2+2+2 seating so I don't get why they said it will be a never before seen uber-luxury S-Class. They should create a bigger sedan than the S-Class with the Maybach or Pullman name and if they design it as good as their latest models then it would be a huge success.

I was hoping for a more unique design. It is just an extremely long S-class.

But the Pullman since the beginning is a extremely long S-class!

Why isn't this the Mercedes Benz S-Class Maybach? These people seem very confused

Probably be a bit more chassis flex than ideal at this length, though somehow I don't see blasting through a twisty Bavarian mountain road as this car's prime domain. Also, I don't think it will be using that much armored steel compared to Kevlar, laminated composites, ceramics and special thermoplastics...
