The limo that carries President Obama down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House today is the latest in a long line of Cadillacs to join the First Fleet over the years.

Think of it as the road-going equivalent to Air Force One.
General Motors has once again built the First Limo, which isn’t so much a car as an armored personnel carrier wrapped in Cadillac bodywork. It is code-named “Stagecoach” but given its weight, wheelbase and bunker-like level of protection, Caddy One has been nicknamed “the Beast.” -Wired.com
