If it has a sunroof it's not a guard edition.

Interesting Article

I wonder how the seller can reconcile the differences between the article and his F/S post?

The mention of needing sheet metal with no other explanation and "Time Sensitive" are also flags. Most of the worst deals I've seen over the years are ones that were Time Sensitive...

Sounds like a car Tony Soprano or your local Drug Dealer would appreciate, can't remember the last time someone pointed a gun at my car, but again California freeways may qualify with the road rage issues...

The VIN of the car indicates it is a standard, North American spec S500 coupe. Not an armored version. Actually, the EPC seems to indicate there was never an armored version of the coupe, MB only built armored sedans. AutoCheck indicates an accident reported in Feb-2012 and no records since then. Last emissions test was Nov-2008 with 103kmi.

Sounds like a normal 140 coupe with an AMG badge on the boot lid.

Another owner that sees the double-paned glass and thinks it's bullet resistant and therefore it's been armored?

Im confused.

Where did I miss that it had a sunroof, and where was the VIN posted?

Did someone actually speak to him?

I have driven a BMW 750il Protection. Although I am certain its not, it sure felt like 10,000 lbs.!

VIN was sent via email/PM. AFAIK, no evidence was ever supplied to validate the claims in the original ad.
