The car is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine, developing 394 HP, compared to today’s S600 that boasts 523 HP. It really needs a lot of force to set the heavyweight armored limousine in motion. The limo is armored to B6/B7 levels of ballistic protection.

With only 15,500 miles (25,000 km) on the clock, the car boasts a flawless condition, after being well maintained and only kept in a garage. The Pullman served the politician right before he was named Prime Minister in 1999. The Government paid half a million dollars to buy the car back than, a price that almost doubled throughout the years.

A fan of the German premium limousines, Vladimir Putin has been recently using a BMW 7 Series. This year though, his favorite chauffeur was killed in Moscow, following a head-on collision with a Mercedes. The Russian President was taking part in the G20 summit in China at the moment of the crash.
