President Trump's New Limo Called "Beast" Spotted At High Speed
In a recent report, President Trump's latest presidential limo, called "The Beast" has been spied testing at GM's Milford Proving Grounds in Detroit. Heavily disguised with a camouflage wrap, spy photos of the armored limo continue making rounds on the internet even though it was speculated to launch during President Donald Trump's inauguration last January.
The vehicle will replace a 2009 Cadillac presidential limo, dubbed as "The Beast," that GM built and delivered after Former Barack Obama was inaugurated way back in 2009. A new presidential limousine has been created and engineered every four to eight years, with Cadillac being one of the most popular choices in recent administration.
The new limo undergoing tests represents an amalgamation of styling features from Cadillac's latest lineup. The back end and grille look like the flagship CT6 sedan. The vehicle is anticipated to feature a reinforced frame similar to GM's commercial truck line, however, the sloping roofline is similar to a Rolls-Royce coach. Details under the hood are far less unclear, especially since vehicle technology and security requirements have changed fiercely since the early days of the former Obama administration.
More so, Trump's current presidential limo has an armor-plated fuel tank, with bullet-proof tires, fire-suppression systems and also features military-grade armor surrounded by fiberglass. In addition, the current presidential limo is equipped with encrypted satellite access, weapons, and medical supplies.
Additionally, the Beast is an upgrade from President Trump's former Cadillac limousine, which was said to be sold for $68,261 at a Bonhams sale earlier this year in England. GM accepted the contract for the latest presidential limousine in September 2013, long before the 2016 election was decided. Until its debut, Trump will continue using the executive branch's current fleet of Cadillac presidential limousines.
