Obama & the BEAST.


The "Beast"

When it comes to protective vehicles there is reportedly nothing more enduring then President Obama's wheels.

The most recent vehicle to be customised as the presidential car is a Chevrolet Kodiak-based, Cadillac-badged limousine often referred to as Cadillac One. (A reference to the presidential aircraft - Air Force One)

It's armour plating is said to be 8+ inches thick with it's doors weighing as much as those on a Boeing 757. The windows are a staggering 5 inches think, enough to repel some seriously heavy gunfire. The tyres are Kevlar reinforced run flats. Pop the boot and you will find firefighting equipment, oxygen tanks and even a cache of the Presidents bloody type - for transfusions on the run.
When you're as influential and powerful as the President of the United States, a vehicle this excessive is justified.
