Mercedes-Benz S600 details:
Like the famously premium and roomy open-plan Pullman railway coaches after which it is called, the Mercedes-Benz S600 Pullman Guard treats its occupants to a travelling environment characterised by generous accommodation and the highest convenience. The car owes its remarkably roomy dashboard to its 4315‑millimetre wheelbase, which is 115 centimetres longer than that of the long version of the special-protection S-class. Indeed, with an overall length of 6356 millimetres, the Mercedes-Benz S600 Pullman Guard is a car of truly majestic proportions which provides its passengers not only a maximum of convenience, but also a superbly appointed setting for discreet meetings, equipped, of course, with all the key communications and entertainment systems. This ensures that the occupants remain fully in touch while enjoying the luxury and convenience of their own, special environment.
With exotic wood trim and high-grade leather, the dashboard of the Mercedes-Benz S600 Pullman Guard shows stylish elegance and ideal finish in each detail. The traditional individual back seatings in a V12 layout ensure impressive seats convenience. They are equipped with massage, multicontour and ventilation functions. Another example of the premium attributes is the thermostat-controlled refrigerated compartment in the control panel between the back seatings, which is included as traditional.
The technical basis for the Pullman limousine is the Mercedes-Benz S600 Guard, the main Mercedes-Benz Guard model. It is powered by a silky-smooth twelve-cylinder biturbo motor with a cubic capacity of 5513 cc. Output is 380 Kw (517 hp), with an cool 830 Nm of torque. The suspension and general car structure have been modified, as it would be impossible to guarantee the long-term overall stability of the car with its extra-long wheelbase if the lengthening workflow consisted of simply inserting an add-on body section. The modifications also offer a solid foundation for the integration of the heavy special-protection components. Furthermore, the state limousine is equipped with a higher back roof for easier access and greater headroom. Four passengers can be accommodated in the back compartment behind the partition - in convenient seatings whose face-to-face arrangement recalls the great Pullman tradition.
