The S600 Guard is the ultimate armored limousine, the choice of third-world dictators and dealers of all kinds of stuff. Because Mercedes builds their Guard series (E, G and S-Class models) on separate assembly lines from their conventional counterparts, the passive and active security measures are built in right from the start – though you wouldn't know from looking at one. The S600 Guard will defend its occupants against machine-gun fire, grenades and other explosives; it'll run on flat tires; it's got its own air supply in case of a gas attack; and in case of a fire, it's got its own fire-extinguishing system and self-sealing fuel tank.

Aston Martin may have the product placement agreement for the 007 movies, but no car on the road lives up to the standard like the S600 Guard. Don't take our word for it, watch the video for yourself. (Just don't mind the techno-trance.)

      Great a bullet proof car with a uber gay techo heart beat... who ever would of seen that comming from the Germans...

      As for the act of making said bullet proof car, while its been done before, Its hard to believe its ever been done so well to bairly show what improvements have been made in the anti-Criminal defence systems... This car looks like it could easily pass for stock in the side by side compairison...

      That is uber cool! On the one hand, you've have to be really paranoid to need a car like that, but on the other, I guess there wouldn't be a market for cars like these if there wasn't a need. Wonder if the CD player plays CDR's ;)

      Is there any protection of the headlights? I mean, if they were to be destroyed during a night attack, would the infrared camera do a good enough job of showing the way?

      John, what you said theree about Europeans failing int he US marketplace is absolutely retarded.

      Have you got any idea how small techno is these days compared to other styles of music? Guess you don't since you're making stupid comments on things you have absolutely no knowledge of.

      As for the car, I might just need one to keep John off my back :p
      Seriously though, those cars save lives. Most likely those of criminals but hey, the product works!

      I guess I'm the only one who enjoyed the soundtrack. The video, on the other hand, could have benefitted from a bit more action...

      Does anyone know the name of that song?

      As Noah suggests, these cars are typically purchased by third-world dictators and mobsters. Those clever engineers at Mercedes go to great lengths to protect these scumbuckets from harm. Isn't there a moral issue here?

      Hey Paulo, you're not the only one who likes the soundtrack. I'm loving it - but hey, I'm stuck in a time warp! Our cars only need 6 litres of fuel - what an anachronism...
      (We're paying quite more at the fuel station than Americans do - highest price last year was 2 Dollars for one lousy liter! Just for those who are interested.)
      Love this car - but there's really a lack of action in this film. Thought of something like the BMW movie with Madonna when I saw the preview image...

      Nice vid. Any news on the soundtrack?

      NASTY techno warning!
      Just absolutely horrid music.
      And Europeans wonder why they fail so miserably in the U.S. marketplace?
      That continent seems to be stuck in a time warp.
