S-class hull is actually just camouflage
There are some extras in the S 680 Guard for safety reasons
The consumption of the V12 is on a par with that of a truck due to its weight
It’s impressive how the S Guard copes with its weight
Even with a flat tire you hardly notice any difference when driving
The bottom line is that the Guard remains controllable at all times, even in the limit area. Even with flat tires. To demonstrate this, the Mercedes technicians let the air out of the left front tire and send me back on the track. In fact, up to 80 km / h you can hardly feel a difference when driving straight ahead! Turning into bends becomes less defined, but is still easy to control. That can save lives in an emergency. It doesn’t have to go that far today. After all, this is a customer vehicle, and given that 457,100 euros basic price damage would be more than disadvantageous – even if the guardrail would probably draw the short straw.
