Why The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard is a Cartel Drug Lord’s Best Friend

El Chapo, the notorious Mexican drug lord, was captured in January yet again. He’s been arrested – and subsequently escaped – multiple times over the years. If he had a Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard at the time, he might still be at largest on the streets of Mexico.The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard is the ultimate ride for a wanted man. The armored car has the highest ballistic protection level (VR10) for civilian vehicles, meaning it can brush off deadly assault rifle bullets with ease. The big-bodied sedan even has you covered against rocket-propelled grenades in case you’re planning some operations under heavy fire.Cartel bosses, heads of state, and business leaders – or, anyone important enough to be assassinated – seem to be the targeted buyer here. It has a bunch of special technical features to ensure the vehicle remains mobile during and after an attack.The VR10 protection level and Explosive Resistant Vehicle 2010 rating passed Germany’s Federal Office of Criminal Investigation’s inspection, so the Mercedes fortress is battle-ready.
