Barack Obama will be welcomed into the presidency with a new armored limo nicknamed "The Beast." Built by GM, the 2009 Cadillac Presidential Limousine has been built to be the "most technologically advanced protection vehicle in the world", according to the Secret Service. Although exact details are classified, it's a safe bet that Obama's limo will have the following security features:
On the aesthetic front, the Cadillac sports a 10-disc CD player, hand-stitched leather interiors, and possibly an iPod dock too. Other details are unknown. A General Motors spokesman said, "One of the specifications is that we don't talk about the specifications."
Obama's limo, officially known as the Presidential State Car, will debut on January 20 as part of the inaugural parade down Pennsylvania Avenue.
