The heavily armored Mercedes S 680 Guard is one of the safest civil vehicles in the world. Production is complex and is almost completely done by hand. We ventured behind the wheel of the 4.2 -ton Chancellor mobile.

The Dragunov Scharf shooter rifle is a classic. Equipped with the right ammunition, the balls of this weapon should even hit tree trunks and the core basically remain intact and therefore dangerous. What “Call of Duty” makes video game fans celebrate, you will find funny at Mercedes only to a limited extent. Because for politicians and other high -ranking personalities such weapons represent a realistic threat. That is why these people always drive up in armored S-classes.

Armored S-Class: That means VR10

The latest version of the rolling bunker is classified as a VR10 (VR stands for vehicle resistance, i.e. vehicle resistance), and thus reaches the highest protection level for civil vehicles. The vehicle is resistant to balls of the caliber 7.62 x 54R (steel full mantle, pointed head, steel hard core with fire set) or 12.5 kilograms of plastic explosive. Thus, the ominous Dragunov balls on this vehicle also bite the teeth. So much security has its price: the rolling protective suit costs at least 543.949 euros, without special requests.

The Mercedes S 680 Guard is the most used movable trutzburg worldwide because the occupants in the armored S classes feel safe as in Abraham’s lap. Only the famous "Beast", the limousine in which the American president drives up, still exceeds the Swabian tank.

To do this, you are supposedly noticeably spacious in the S 680 Guard. Such a vehicle is not built overnight. An S-Class is completed after about one and a half days, with the Guard it is around 50 days. The experts work around 400 minutes at each of the 16 stations, in the series there are 90 seconds in the series. While the normal S-Class in the state-of-the-art factory 56 is almost without human intervention, the Mercedes S 680 Guard is also assembled by hand in Sindelfingen in Sindelfingen. "These are particularly experienced colleagues," explains production manager Christof Wittlinger.

Panor steel shell

The structure of an S 680 Guard differs significantly from that of an S-Class, even if both are visually similar. The armored version has a shell made of armored steel, which is equipped with aramide elements, i.e. Kevlar, and gets the appearance of the serial class with a sheet metal cover. “The feat is the security cell. The planking is only decoration, ”explains heading manager DR. Andreas Zygan, who describes the trade with the armored vehicles as "business that takes place in secret".

When it comes to protection of people, discretion is the top priority. The Mercedes technicians are always in an exchange with the experts of the Federal Criminal Police Office and the shelling office who try to uncover the weak points of the S 680 Guard. That is why you also fuel the car with over 300 shots of VR10 ammunition to see whether the biofidel dummy survives the ball of the ball without prejudice. The doll has 42 bones as well as twelve soft tissue and tissue components that reproduce the nature of a Homo sapiens.

Errors are a no-go

Errors are a no-go. That is why you play through all eventualities in Sindelfingen. An element of the underbody protection weighs 120 kilograms and consists of steel with an aramide coating to be prepared against splinters. There are also centimeter thickness, slices coated with polycarbonate splinter protection. In an emergency, those in the doors can be closed or opened in an emergency so that you can escape through the opening. That is why there is a unit made of compressor and valve block with pressure memory in each gate. Each door weighs 120 kilograms (S-Class, about 25 kilograms) and is moved using an electro-mechanical system. "We hear from our customers or their bodyguards again and again that it is the most important thing that they have their hands free and can react immediately," explains Andreas Zygan.

In total, Mercedes S 680 Guard weighs around 4.2 tons. Technical subtleties are reduced to the bare essentials. With this Mercedes, robustness is the top maxim. That is why the Guard has a 12 volt electrical system and does without gimmicks such as a 3D cockpit or a head-up display that also does not work because of the splinter film in the windshield.

Luxurious in the interior

In the interior it is luxurious. That is why the Mercedes S 680 Guard is only available with a long wheelbase and, if desired, with a refrigerator in the fund armrest of the fund. Behind the bench there is a tank protective wall on which the fire extinguishing system (only works up to a speed of up to 10 km/h, otherwise the medium would fizzle out) and the fresh air cylinder are attached. This is particularly important for gas attacks. Because then the passenger cell is cordoned off hermetically, creates an overpressure that presses the poisonous fabrics outwards and floods the interior with fresh air.

One advantage of the Mercedes S 680 Guard is that the vehicles can hardly be distinguished from the outside by a series model. “The vehicle occupants don’t want to notice any price. That’s why the S 680 Guard is almost always painted black, a few white, ”says production manager Christof Wittlinger.

This is how the Chancellor’s tank drives

We are now sitting at the wheel of a black painted model. A six-liter V12 power plant with 450 kW /612 hp and a maximum torque of 830 Newton meters works under the bonnet. Already at the first rounds on the closed training course it becomes clear: The Mercedes S 680 Guard drives unspectacularly and thanks to the specially coordinated chassis up to a top speed of 190 km/h.

However, especially in curves and in the event of evasive maneuvers, you can see the weight of the vehicle that is heavy, which tends to the side or urges the edge of the road. "The car is not trimmed for dynamics, but to get away from a dangerous situation as quickly as possible," explains Andreas Zygan. The approximately 500.000 euro armored cars have to be moved as if you had a load of raw eggs on board. Hectic steering movements are taboo.

Hectic steering movements are taboo

Therefore, only particularly trained drivers are allowed to take the wheel. Even plate tires do not prevent the escape, as we can determine. The Michelin Pax Notrauflaufpneus wear the Mercedes S 680 Guard for up to 30 kilometers, and the vehicle remains mobile. In the center console there are buttons for the blue light, the siren, flash lights and radio devices as well as a endangered alarm system, in which the sound pressure is then particularly high. It itches us in our fingers to make a little bit of a rabatz, but then leave it. We don’t want to notice at any price.

Completely no matter who is a chancellor, they always drive around with such boxes. The (supposed) Greens are also driven in this way. Why now the excitement. Everyone knows what the supposed climate protection is really all about: disassembly of the automotive industry in D and massively collect money from the citizens ! Use for the climate ???? Just ask the Fridays – they know about everything…..

    I think you have forgotten a state car, namely Putin his state car from your own production, if not China state car.

    The Putin’s car was not mentioned is probably because the Russian automotive industry is not exactly refuge with fame. But who likes robust classic car technology….

  4. But the mini gears do not need a stacking car
    Small cars are enough for them, but only 2 people are in there anyway.driver. In addition, everyone must have a company car for private use monetary advantage and.Pay the driver’s salary proportionally.EA must finally be the end with such additional. Deputy at the expense of taxpayers. The same must also apply to accumulated flight miles.They belong back to the state treasury u. not to the "Frequent flyer" So that you can then make beautiful expensive vacation trips at the expense of taxpayers (like Oezdemir to Patagonia). Baerbock will already choose where your next vacation trip is going

  5. and why
    he does not pay the car out of his own pocket? Every politician should do that or pay € 100 per km and he should only ride by bike.

    No, they shouldn’t all. But the ratiosity must remain preserved. One wonders why the politicians have to areolate themselves so much? Because they have so many friends and sympathizers? Probably not. If I had so much dirt on the stick, I would also tug myself.

  7. Unnecessary excitement
    To this vehicle? We are glad that we can produce products in our country and offer on the world market. Who should buy it if not about this vehicle? We are glad that we can produce such a product in our country and offer on the world market. Who should buy it if our top government does not consider it necessary to use it? There are enough personalities worldwide who have to worry for whatever reason. It would be bad if our Chancellor would not be endangered and would therefore be considered unimportant. I don’t want to hear the voices if something would happen whether we are unable to protect our political tip?? All polemics here is inappropriate. Unfortunately we live in a crazy and dangerous time

  8. As now 6-liter car?
    I hope that my 6-liter current. It will probably not drive around with a diesel or petrol engine, while the rest of the (election) people are imposed on these stupid electric cars or. Load bikes or the public bus recommend! This is again so typical, preaching water and drinking wine! Thanks to the stupid energy transition, we can always talk to the neighbors in a few years, who is allowed to load their car, because if more than 5 do the same at the same time, the power grid collapses! Finally we exchange the nuclear power plants 21. JHD. Against Windmuhlen 15. JHD. a. And without wind … no matter, the main thing is that the women’s politicians still have enough fuel in reserve so that everyone can jet individually with the plane to meet! Germany Wonderland!

    If a 6 liter were more economical than a 1.5 liter engine, why does nobody build it? I can tell them because they tell total nonsense.

  10. Mr
    Really impressive what the vast majority of the comments secrete for a mental scrap. Of course, the Chancellor in the Federal Republic, as a potential assassination goal, is driven by the area with the highest possible safety. But the Tyisch, mispleasable German small spirit is fushing here from environmental protection, cargo bike, electric drive etc. Only embarrassing this unspeakable driver.

  11. Who like this
    has to protect, probably didn’t have the hump clean. Scholz has enough scandals on the neck: Warburg-Bank, Cum Ex, Wirecard are named as an example. In addition, his forgetfulness in the committees of investigation. He probably needs the Panzer sedan. Pope Francis is completely different.

  12. Incredible
    These envy comments. Germany as a business nation lives from the production of innovative technology, especially the car farm has Germany on 1 worldwide. Positioned in this division. It goes without saying that a German Federal Chancellor is also a high -end product that is made in Germany! What kind of picture would this give if our Chancellor would use a foreign vehicle (at the end a Tesla or Chinese)? In addition, there is enough insane in this world (lateral thinkers, anarchists, right or left radicals) the opinions or actions of politicians cannot accept and react aggressively (best example the murder of the Kassel regional president!) I think it’s perfectly okay other heads of state have the AUC

  13. Who with it
    The climate and the environment is serious, should proceed with a good example. E-car and bike would be appropriate. Incidentally, Scholz and Baerbock could have visited Paris, Brussels and Poland, not at a distance of two days. Also a miserable example in times of the Internet and video conferences. It just doesn’t fit. And that is shameful: preaching water and drinking wine.

  14. Who believes
    That with the Dragunow is all for the press. In view of the development in the ammunition sector, the car will and will have to withstand much larger calibers. However, even at some point it ends when he should not mutate completely into a tank. But this is calculated risk, because the likelihood of terrorists come to special weapons and can be used (size, weight, operation) is low.

  15. Why not ?
    Why shouldn’t a German head of government be traveling in a armored limousine, it is all over the world and has absolutely nothing to do with climate protection or anything else !
