Obama will ride to inauguration in armored 'Beast'
WASHINGTON–President-elect Barack Obama will enjoy his inaugural parade while riding in a hulking behemoth of a Cadillac that befits its nickname, “the Beast.”
The vehicle is thought to have bullet-proof glass, a heavily armored body, run-flat tires and a completely sealed interior to protect against a chemical attack....Doors: eight-inch thick and the weight of a 757 door".
Cadillac spokesman David Caldwell would not give much detail on the car, or confirm reports that it could withstand a rogue asteroid or rock-propelled grenade. But he promised that the finished product would combine form with function.
