In Dallas, people purchase a limo service for special events, weddings and other types of parties. But, do you know who rides in a limo all the time? The President. He doesn’t ride in just any limo that you might find at a local limo service provider. He rides in a state of the art machine with some really unique features.
We’ll start with the windows. The widows are said to be 5-6 inches thick. Try getting anything through that. They are bomb proof and can withstand an armor-piercing bullet. The only window that opens on the entire limo is the driver window. It comes down 2.75 inches, only so the driver can speak with Secret Service or other agencies.
The doors are 8 inches of armor-plated safety. These doors are the same weight as a cabin door on a Boeing 757.
The cabin of the limo is spacious, has Wi-Fi and a panic button to summon help. There is also a satellite phone with direct connections to the Pentagon and the Vice President.
The entire vehicle is said to be sealed in case of a chemical attack and it has a lock-down mode. Similar to the way a bank vault shuts down in a robbery.
The fuel tank is armor-plated to help repel bullets. As a second defense, the tank is lined with a special foam, similar to race cars to prevent a large explosion even if it is penetrated.
The tires are said to be reinforced Kevlar tires to help protect against bullets, spike strips or other items that could be used to puncture the tires.
With all the features, the President is not only riding in style with a limo made by Cadillac, but he’s riding very protected.
