  10. Special Protection Group (SPG) is responsible for protecting the country’s head of state. The SPG identifies the security requirements and then decides if the dignified person they are protecting requires a vehicle upgrade or not. The SPG orders two identical cars, and the second vehicle is used as a decoy.

Visually it is almost indistinguishable from a regular Maybach unless you start to observe the details, which is a neat trick to deceive the uninitiated. PM Narendra Modi was first seen arriving in this tank of a car at the Hyderabad House when he met Russian President Vladimir Putin on December 6. Previously, it was the Range Rover Vogue and Toyota Land Cruiser that was safeguarding the Prime Minister since he assumed office while he had a customised Scorpio and Bolero while he was the Chief Minister of Gujarat.

Let us know your opinion on these facts about the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Guard, and do you think it could have had any more modifications that could make it any safer than it already is?
