History: Mercedes-Benz Guard's rich tradition

  • Special-protection development since 1928
It was almost 80 years ago that Mercedes-Benz built the first ex factory special-protection vehicle – a W 08/460 "Nürburg" model. The 770 K, which once provided protection befitting the status of Japanese Emperor Hirohito, followed in 1930. Today the 770 K can be seen at the Mercedes Museum in Untertürkheim. Since 1964, numerous special-protection models have been developed, ranging from the legendary Mercedes-Benz 600 to the 450 SEL and the G-Class Off-roader.
