Barack Obama’s Moving Command Post

presidential-state-carUS President Barack Obama – first black and 44th President of the United States of America – arrived to take the oath of his office in a new brand car, a Cadillac Presidential Limousine. As per one of the many traditions associated with presidential inauguration in United States, the president’s car is shown for the first time on the day of inauguration – Jan 20. The safest (may be costliest) car has already been officially names as Cadillac One and nicknamed as the Beast and a rolling bunker. I call it a command post on the move.

Cadillac Presidential Limousine is an ultimate combination of high end engineering, communication technologies and safety. Results of extreme testing and development, this beast of a very customized diesel powered car can withstand a direct hit, chemical attack and much more. It has an inbuilt coded communication system. It also carries CTS and Escalade design cues. The boot contains an independent oxygen supply and advanced fire-fighting systems.

What is more, Defense systems of Cadillac One includes pump action shotguns, night-vision cameras and tear-gas cannons and some medical aid gadgets. Cadillac Presidential Limousine weighs more than 5,000 pounds, goes from zero to sixty in a leisurely 15 seconds, and has a top speed of just sixty mph.
