The Obamamobile

Last week, we brought you an interesting detail about the chassis of the Cadillac One Presidential limousine. After scouring the web for more details about the top-secret Caddy, we’ve been able to gather more information about the vehicle. Here’s what we found:

The vehicle has five-inch thick bulletproof glass everywhere except for the windshield and high-strength ceramic armor
The passenger compartment, which has its own internal air supply and filters, can be sealed against biological and nuclear contamination
The tires are capable of running flat at over 100 mph
The limo does not contain any weapons. Instead, the firepower is in the “war wagons” – the black Chevy Suburbans that follow the limo to either side of the motorcade
The floor is mine proof
The vehicle stays with the President on both domestic and foreign trips. It’s usually transported in a McDonnell Douglas C-17 Globemaster (a large military transport aircraft)
If the car becomes disabled by an attack, the job of the agent that rides with the President (and other occupants) is to get the Head of State out of the danger area and into the back-up limo as fast as possible. Jack Bauer-like shootouts will have to wait until the President is out of danger
The vehicle uses a gasoline GM truck engine, although exact details of the powerplant are scarce
As you may have expected, it gets terrible gas mileage

And there you have it – all the details we could find about President Barack Obama’s Cadillac One. If you know more information this breathtakingly-secure vehicle, please share them in the comments below.
