10 – It’s Not a Cadillac
The United States presidential state car is nicknamed “The Beast”, “Cadillac One”, “Limousine One”, “First Car” AND code named “Stagecoach” by the Secret Service.
Whatever you choose to call it, it’s the official state car of the President of the United States. The White House will debut a fleet of new presidential limousines later in 2017. However, despite the distinct Cadillac look, it doesn’t share much with a Cadillac.
Unlike any presidential state car before it, The Beast has little in common with any other standard production car. Its chassis, diesel engine and transmission are all based on those used in the Chevrolet Kodiak, a rugged commercial vehicle previously sold as everything from a dump truck to a U-Haul.
Some standard trim pieces, such as headlamps from an Escalade and tail lights from the now-discontinued STS, keep it looking vaguely Cadillac-like.
Construction contracts for the next model of presidential state car were given out in 2013. Public records show that General Motors was awarded three contracts for the new presidential limousine. Photographs of the 2017 model show that the vehicle has the same grille and headlamp design as contemporary Cadillac models.
9 – Armored like the Honey Badger
Needless to say, “The Beast” has security specs that are out of this world. Calling it armored is an understatement.
There is probably not a better-armored vehicle with windows on the planet than The Beast. Its armor plating is said to be 8 inches thick and its doors weigh as much as those on a Boeing 757 aircraft. Just think about that for a second……
There are some photographs of President Obama getting out of the previous model of the Beast where you can actually see how thick those doors are. They even look like plane doors.
Five-inch thick bulletproof windows, none of which can actually open except for the driver’s window that can roll down all of 3 inches, contain at least five layers at any given point to put a serious damper on any effort by the Oswalts and Booths of the world.
And those gigantic, nearly bus-size Goodyear tires are Kevlar-reinforced run-flats capable of keeping The Beast on the road for quite some distance if needed. The interior is totally sealed off from the outside world to reduce risks of a chemical attack, while a special foam surrounds the fuel tank to insulate it in the event of any sort of impact.
The bodywork is made from hardened steel, aluminum, titanium and ceramics. In addition to the heavy armor-plated doors, the Beast has a reinforced steel plate running underneath the vehicle that protects it from roadside bombs.
8 – Night Vision Cameras
Any Secret Service agent assigned to drive the president has to take an intense defensive-driving course on a special track at the Secret Service academy in Beltsville, Maryland. They practice evasive maneuvers, high-speed cornering and precision driving.
One of the reasons that the drivers need these advanced driving skills is to be able to handle the car from a night vision camera in case there is complete loss of visibility.
