This $500,000 armored Mercedes-Maybach limo is a force to be reckoned with
Over the past 100 years, Mercedes-Benz has earned quite a reputation for building some of the toughest and most solidly engineered cars in the world. Sitting at the top of Mercedes' lineup is the massive Mercedes-Maybach S600 limo.
The 5,300-pound luxury sedan offers more performance and safety than most people in the world would ever need. But there are a select few who need more protection than crumple zones and a lot of airbags. They need to stop bombs and bullets. They need armor.For these Mercedes-Maybach owners, Canada's Inkas Armored Vehicle Manufacturing has come up with a Maybach that can offer some "extra protection."
"It shows what happens when the best innovations in security, performance and technology merge to make a top-notch vehicle," said retired Maj. Gen. David Fraser, Inkas' COO, in a statement. "Based on the Mercedes-Maybach S600, it caters to customers who desire prestigious, high-class vehicles without compromising safety."
The cost? Just a half-million US dollars.
