“CBS News RAW:” Motorists and industry insiders from all over the world flocked to Tokyo in order to see the latest electric car models currently on display at an auto exhibition.
If you’re super important and require protection look no further than the new Mercedes S600 Pullman Guard limosine. Mercedes has been in the business of providing mobile protection for 80 years and to celebrate the anniversary they have officially released the latest in luxury vehicle protection.

All this extra protection is heavy and a massive power-plant is required to pull the Pullman around, this comes in the form of a 380kw 5.5-liter twin-turbo V12, which is supported by a self-sealing fuel tank and integrated fire suppression system.
All kinds of luxury equpiment is available, and even though for wealthy public figures price should not be a problem, Mercedes also offers an armored E Guard and G Guard as well as the standard-wheelbase S600 Guard.
