The first Mercedes-Benz S-Guard W222 in Russia has been modified by local tuner TopCar.

The owner selected a two-tone light beige/cream & dark blue scheme for his S600 Guard which has received a partial crocodile leather upholstery. This isn't actually the first time when TopCar works with crocodile leather as back in 2012 they applied the same treatment on the previous generation S-Class Guard. This time, the crocodile leather has been combined with soft Nappa leather and contrast diamond stitching also seen on the floor mats.

We remind you the latest S-Guard is based on the S600 version powered by a V12 6.0-liter twin-turbo engine rated at 530 HP (390 kW) and 830 Nm (612 lb-ft). More importantly, the vehicle has been certified for highest ballistic protection in resistance class VR9 and comes with bespoke protective components built from a special steel incorporated in the cavities between the body structure and the outer skin.

It also has special heat-resistant synthetic fibers to increase splinter protection while all glass surfaces have been polycarbonate-coated on the inside. The S-Class Guard benefits from heated windscreen and side windows, opaque roller blinds, panic alarm system, hydraulic side windows and emergency fresh air system. It can be had either as a four- or five-seater while the trunk has a cargo capacity of 350 liters.
