Obama's Limo: Nicknamed "The Beast"

"The Beast"...very fitting for this man who I refuuuuuse to call "President". The Cadillac will make its debut on 20 January, as part of the inaugural parade. It is traditional to show presidential cars off for the first time in this way. Many of the vehicle's security enhancements cannot be discussed, it is safe to say that this car's security and coded communications systems make it the most technologically advanced protection vehicle in the world." Safety and high-tech features include 8-inch thick armor-plated doors (each weighing the same as a cabin door on a Boeing 757), run-flat Kevlar-reinforced tires that are puncture and shred-resistant, an independent oxygen supply, an advanced fire-fighting system located in the boot, pump-action shotguns, night-vision cameras and tear-gas cannons, Obamas own personal storage of blood, bulletproof glass, a completely sealed interior to ward off a chemical attack, and special steel wheels that can drive without the tire attached. Some joke the car is so tough it could withstand a rocket-propelled grenade. Its exterior is styled around the Cadillac STS and DTS but underneath the sheet-metal the vehicle is built on a medium-duty truck chassis. The limo has recently been seen testing in prototype form alongside several GMC Topkick pickups, and according to onlookers the wheels and tires on the limo are almost identical to those on the trucks 19.5in Goodyear Regional RHS tires. The rest of the exterior includes parts from several Cadillac models, such as headlights from an Escalade, and the grille and taillights from an STS. The panels are comprised of dual-hardness steel, aluminum, titanium and ceramic material to help break up projectiles aimed at the car. Inside, the car features the same cut-and-sewn handmade leather upholstery found in the CTS. The rear passenger area includes an extensive executive compartment with ample seating space, outward visibility and useful mobile office features. An embroidered presidential seal is positioned in the center of the rear seat back panel, as well as on each rear door trim panel. Presidential seals are also affixed to the exterior rear doors. http://www.motorauthority.com/first-specs-for-barack-obamas-cadillac-one.html

10 Things About OBAMA's LIMO
15 Things You Didn’t Know About Barack OBAMA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcIDe2eg07E SUBSCRIBE NOW: https://goo.gl/NktkX7 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/scvideos 1. Windows: The windows on Obama's limo are reportedly 5 to 6 inches thick, bomb-proof, and can withstand armour-piercing bullets. Compared to previous versions of the presidential limos, this newer model has more window space providing better outward visibility. The driver’s window is the only window that opens, at only 2.75 inches, so the driver can speak with secret service agents outside the vehicle. 2. Doors: The doors, which were seen both in photos of the vehicle leaked prior to Inauguration Day and afterwards on the finished product, are armour-plated and 8 inches thick–three inches thicker than President Bush’s limo doors. These doors are the same weight as a Boeing 757 cabin door. An additional safety feature includes steel overlaps between the seams to protect against bullets entering in the space between the doors and body. 3. Interior: The interior of Obama’s limo is rumoured to be completely sealed in case of a chemical attack. Another safety feature that may possibly be included on the car is a lock-safety mechanism that, in case of emergency, seals off the entire car similar to how a bank vault can be locked during a robbery. 4. Driver: Obama’s driver is not just a regular chauffeur, but a CIA agent specially-trained for situations ranging from driving during challenging situations to regular types of mechanical break-downs as well as how to handle any emergency that may come up. The driver also has access to helpful equipment such as a communications system and GPS unit in his compartment. 5. Fuel Tank: The limo’s fuel tank is armour-plated to help repel bullets. As a second line of defense, similar to what race cars use, the fuel tank on Obama’s limo is filled with a special foam that prevents it from exploding even if it sustains a direct hit. 6. Defense equipment: There are several pieces of defense equipment rumored to be on board. Night-vision cameras, pump-action shotguns, and tear-gas cannons are among some of those weapons speculated to be included. If Obama is injured during an attack while in the car, there are supposedly bottles of the president’s blood in case he needs emergency transfusions. Additionally, the trunk houses an emergency oxygen supply and firefighting equipment. 7. Tyres: To protect President Obama from bullets, spike strips, or any other device aimed at disabling the car’s Goodyear tyres, the limo is likely equipped with specially designed, Kevlar-reinforced, shred and puncture-resistant tires. If indeed someone or something was able to destroy the tyres, the car also has steel rims and a run-flat device so that if the tyres are disabled, the car can still drive at high speeds to escape any imminent danger. 8. Chassis: The car, commonly known as Cadillac One, but nicknamed by the Secret Service as The Beast, is thought to be based on a Cadillac DTS when it comes to style, but may be built on a truck chassis in order to support the weight of the car and all its special equipment. There is also speculated to be a reinforced, 5-inch steel plate that runs underneath the car in the event that a bomb is placed there. 9. Passenger section: The area in which Obama and any of his approved guests ride is a space of both security and luxury. This section generously seats four and includes a glass partition that can only be opened by President Obama as well as a panic button for summoning help. While riding in the limo, Obama can still work and stay connected safely on his fold-away desktop that includes a laptop with secure Wi-Fi capabilities and a satellite phone with a direct line to the Pentagon and the Vice President. 10. Body: To fend off anything from bullets to rocks, the body of the car is probably composed of a mixture of hard and soft material that work to halt and dissipate the energy of the projectile so that no matter what type of projectile may be hurled toward the car, the outside protection will not be penetrated. Typical materials used for these types of cars are a combination of dual-hardness steel, aluminum, titanium, and ceramic. Don't forget to click LIKE, SUBSCRIBE and COMMENT Below!
