For all you people out there who were busy wondering which car is fit for a President and leader of the Freeworld, I have decided to give you a peek by reviewing what Barrack Obama will be driven on for the next 8 years.

The limousine that the 44th President used today is fondly referred to as the Barack Mobile/"The Beast",or "Cadillac One"from the names of Presidential Aircraft the name is derived from the Cars the Pope uses that are known as the Pope Mobile(s).Well in this case this particular limousine is a Presidential Series 2009 Cadillac Presidential Limousine.

Most of its technical specs are classified obviously for security reasons but one of its outstanding features is that it can withstand a Air to surface cruise missile attack and the bullet proof glas is over five feet thick it is touted as being thus by a senior Obama aide," “This car’s security and coded communications systems make it the most technologically advanced protection vehicle in the world.” said Nicholas Trotta, Assistant Director for the Office of Protective Operations.The vehicle is built by GM, But it must undergo some custom rebuilding for security reasons.

Here is some additional news from wikinews.Mr David Caldwell of General Motors has revealed that the sleek black car would include a hand-crafted interior and "state of the art electronics." The car's high-tech security features include five-inch-thick (12.7-centimeter-thick) bombproof glass, tough-as-nails tires, and a sealed interior that's invulnerable to chemical attack.

The armoured limousine has been heavily modified to withstand potential attacks by weapons or bombs. The San Francisco Chronicle puts it in a proper perspective noting, “a half-inch of transparent armor is enough to stop a .44 Magnum round at point-blank range; at a thickness of 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches, the same material can withstand higher-velocity bullets fired from military assault rifles.”

According to spy photographer, Brenda Priddy, and General Motors, the limousine, which has the intricate, dual-textured grille, is also equipped with standard Goodyear Regional RHS truck tires in a 285/70R19.5 size, on 19.5-inch wheels. The rims have a run-flat device (manufactured by Hutchinson Industries). Xenon headlights from the Escalade are installed in the front, while the rear has some STS part. The doors are at least 20 centimeters (8 inches) thick. It carries the US flag on the front fenders and an embroidered Seal of the President of the United States is affixed to several panels in the back.

I hope that Saps your curiosity. I originally posted this story one week ago here.
