Here is the exterior and interior of President Buhari’s Bullet Proof MayBach S560 worth £438k (210,023,738.60) that got people talking.
Mercedes-Maybach is are armored to meet CEN BR6 protection levels characterized to withstand 308 Winchester FMJ ammunition, as well as bomb blasts.
The Michelin tyres feature steel rings to ensure they don’t slip off in the event of a flat. This Proceed On Function run-flat technology means not even a shredded tyre can halt a getaway.
The fuel tank isn’t armored, but it is coated with a special material that closes any holes automatically if it is hit; the same material is used in Boeing AH-64 Apache tank attack helicopters. Elsewhere, supporting parts such as steering and axles are all reinforced.
Built at the Sindelfingen Mercedes plant, the Mercedes-Maybach Guard is powered by the same twin-turbo 6.0-litre 523bhp V12 engine as the regular S600, with 612lb ft of torque on offer.
Options include a £7268 fresh air system, which sits under the boot floor injecting the interior with fresh air to escape a possible gas attack, while a weapon safe can also be added to the boot at a cost of £1863.
