The Armored Group (TAG) has just completed a new armoured Maybach 57S, which was developed for an unnamed high net-worth individual in an African country.
This was the first ‘up armoured’ Maybach developed using the US company’s TAGLight composite. This composite is said to be 63pc lighter than conventional ballistic steel. The product has been added to the firm’s inventory. The process was done with a goal of maintaining the interior and exterior details of the vehicle; on completion the armoured vehicle is indistinguishable from the ordinary vehicle. The work took about seven weeks from start to completion.
The Maybach will take a driver and one passenger in the front and two passengers in the back.
Robert Pazderka, owner of The Armored Group, said: “The Maybach is just another of the unique projects that The Armored Group has been tasked with developing. Our team is very specialised; they are experts in what they do. They face numerous challenges combining the protection required while not losing the integrity, design and performance elements of the vehicles. As we receive more and more requests for both innovative personal security as well as SWAT and law enforcement vehicles, our dedicated team is tasked with finding solutions to meet their needs—while expanding the company’s inventory of vehicles.”
The firm also has a non-armoured specialty vehicle division. The company builds several types of vehicles used for serving warrants, conducting raids and transporting people. Other vehicles are used for Hostage Negotiators, EOD, Command Cantres, Crime Scene investigations, and others.
