Toronto — INKAS Armored Vehicle Manufacturing recently announced its fully armored Mercedes-Benz G63 executive limousine, with the first model slated for release next month.

“We’re proud to introduce this first-of-its-kind bulletproof limousine based on the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG platform,” says INKAS Armored Vehicle Manufacturing VP of Sales Philip Daskal. “The vehicle was fully designed, stretched and armored in-house at our facility in Toronto, Canada. Due to the recent increase in Mercedes-Benz G-class orders for armoring and stretching, we have scheduled the deployment of a new dedicated assembly line for this model.”

It features a leather-and-wood customized interior, and is equipped with captain-style heated and cooled leather seats with massage systems, an executive customized safe, a bar, an innovative light system, and multimedia and audio systems. The partition between the driver and the passenger compartment also contains built-in television screens.

The vehicle's passenger compartment is armored sufficiently to protect the occupant from handgun fire and high-powered rifle fire alike, in accordance with NIJ Standard 0108.01 Level 3 and/or CEN 1063 Level B6. The floor is also armored to protect against shrapnel from explosives like roadside bombs, and can withstand the force of two military hand grenades delivering a blast equivalent to nearly 3.5 pounds of TNT. All doors and windows apertures are overlapped with bullet catchers installed between all open crevices. In order to ensure that the vehicle’s factory characteristics are left mostly intact after armoring, INKAS has upgraded suspension and braking components to ensure maximal ride quality and control.

In terms of window protection, INKAS employed a new generation of bulletproof glass, which is more transparent compared to other ballistic glass available on the market while maintaining the necessary ballistic properties. INKAS’ custom-engineered solution allows the windows to maintain operability and be rolled down for limited use on toll ways, checkpoints, and during document transfers.

INKAS Armored Vehicle Manufacturing is currently working on another new generation of armored Mercedes-Benz G-class limousines.
