Mercedes-Benz S 600 Pullman Guard: The new large state limousine from Mercedes-Benz
The top-of-the-line vehicle of the Mercedes-Benz Guard family is the S 600 Pullman Guard with maximum integrated protection. With this vehicle, the world’s oldest automaker continues its unique tradition of building large, armoured government limousines. More than 80 years ago, Mercedes-Benz became the world’s first automotive brand to develop and manufacture Pullman limousines with special protection.
This unique experience and the technical leadership in constructing special protection limousines that has been confirmed time and again over the years gives the Stuttgart-based premium brand an outstanding position in this demanding segment. For dignified appearances, many governments, heads of state and royalty all over the world therefore use Mercedes-Benz limousines that justifiably bear the designation
“Pullman”. Like the famous Pullman rail cars, the state limousines from Stuttgart offer a luxurious interior and the very best in comfort. The original Pullman cars were manufactured by the U.S. Pullman Palace Car Company and had spacious luxury interiors. Beginning in the 1920s, the word was also used in Germany to refer to large, comfortable automobiles sporting a partition between the driver’s seat and the passenger compartment. Since then, Mercedes-Benz has been offering its customers “Pullman” limousines that have an extremely spacious passenger compartment in the rear. The seating conditions for four passengers sitting facing other each are especially regal in the Pullman limousines with very long wheelbase that have been offered since 1963.
The luxurious Mercedes-Benz Pullman limousines not only offer their passengers the highest levels of comfort, but also provide opulent surroundings for discreet discussions and all important communication and entertainment facilities. The result is that you are confidently in full control of every situation, while also enjoying your comfortable, individual world at all times.
