If you operate in a position where you are likely to be shot at most violently - say, high-ranking government official, corporate bigwig, High political figure- then please meet the Armored Mercedes S500 from Mezcal, It's based on the latest generation of Mercedes S-Class. The S-class has always been synonymous with luxury, indulgence, and wealth, and it continues that proud tradition. Inside, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has a perfectly executed modern twist on traditional limo themes. There's the expected lashings of leather, analogue clock, nautical-style circular air vents that rotate with precision, and even a two-spoke steering wheel that isn't usually associated with today's premium cars.

Behind the behemoth Mercedes chrome grille and beneath the stately three-pointed-star badge lies a 4.7-litre twin-turbocharged petrol V8 engine producing 335kW of power and 700Nm of torque. The vehicle is outfitted in such a way that the extra weight of the armor has least effect on the performance and power of the Armored S500.

The vehicle can also monitor 360 degrees around itself and can alert the driver to avoid possible dangers. A feature that can offer VIPs a strong feeling wherever they are headed. The 12.3-inch screen connects with a TFT speedometer and tachometer that both sit raised from the leather-topped dashboard to create a floating effect. Behind the screens is soft mood lighting that also glows from the door handles and lower dashboard. The lighting colour can be changed, but it isn't an easy task as the Mercedes-Benz Comand infotainment system can be tricky to learn.

Bullet Proof Mercedes S500

Mezcal outfits the S500  with a variety of ballistic components to make sure it meets B6 certification. Extensive steel armor plating is used for the entire occupant shell, including the doors, the A-, B- and C-pillars, the roof, the firewall and the rear bulkhead. Armoring prevents bullets from passing through door locks and the gaps where the doors are shut. On the doors where metal adjoins window glass, a meticulously tested labyrinth system prevents bullets from entering the cabin.

The armoring process itself involves the removal of the entire interior, including the dash, and the installation of high-strength steel plates around the passenger compartment and the greenhouse. Perhaps the toughest parts of the car to armor are the doors, not only because of the heavy ballistic glass windows which must move up and down, but because of the gain in door thickness and the stress on the door frames themselves. Doors are reinforced, and entirely new electric motors are installed in the doors for power windows, in addition to motors that enable the doors themselves to close automatically. Next comes the windshield, which is replaced with ballistic glass, adding several hundred pounds to the weight of the car. The ballistic glass itself is a sandwich of laminated glass and polycarbonate material, and is easily the single heaviest element of the armoring package. Mezcal also adds underbody protection which can defeat grenades thrown under the car, as well as a self-sealing fuel tank.
