Digging a bit deeper reveals that it has VR10 ballistic protection abilities and is capable of withstanding bullets from AK-47 rifles. In addition to that, it can also safeguard the occupants from a 15 kg TNT explosion from a distance of 2 m. In addition, the windows of the vehicle have a polycarbonate coating on the inside, making them bulletproof. The underbody of the car is also heavily armoured in order to protect the passengers from a direct explosion.
Fresh Air Supply
One of the most impressive qualities of the Maybach S650 Guard is the separate air supply for the cabin. In case of chemical or gas attacks, the vehicle is capable of supplying fresh air to the passengers for a substantial period of time. Furthermore, the fuel tank of the S650 has been coated with a special material which can seal the holes on its own after taking a hit. It also has an automatic fire suppression system and external communication system. Finally, the vehicle comes with run-flat tyres which can cover a lot of distance at relatively high speeds even after being shot and punctured. All these abilities make PM Modi’s Mercedes Maybach S650 one of the safest vehicles on the planet.
