“The Beast”…Where Have I Read That Reference?


Barack Obama will ride in an all-new Cadillac Presidential Limousine after his inauguration as the 44th President of the United States today.He will use the vehicle, nicknamed the Beast, on the 1.7-mile journey from the Capitol along the parade route to the White House. It reportedly has armour eight inches thick, tear-gas cannons and Kevlar-reinforced tyres that resist attack. For security reasons, most of the details remain confidential.

Since the 1930s, the job of providing transport for the President and members of his administration has alternated irregularly between Cadillac, one of troubled General Motors’ marques, and Ford’s luxury brand, Lincoln. Ford has not supplied the White House with limousines since 1989.

The latest Cadillac Presidential Limousine, nicknamed “The Beast”, is a completely new design, succeeding the DTS Presidential Limousine that appeared in 2004. Although it incorporates styling from contemporary Cadillacs, the heavily armoured limousine has been tailored to exacting specifications befitting its high-profile role. (LINK)
