Trump’s New Presidential Limo Spotted On The Streets Of New York

President Trump’s new limousine has officially entered service as the commander-in-chief was spotted using the vehicle in New York over the weekend.

Looking far more modern than its predecessor, the new presidential limo sort of resembles a stretched version of the Cadillac CT6. However, there are a number of differences as the ‘Beast’ has a unique grille and more traditional headlights. The car is also based on an entirely different platform and is heavily armored.

Little is known about the limo, but Fox News reports the government’s contract with General Motors calls for a dozen limos to be built for $15.8 (£12 / €13.4) million. At least two of them were spotted in New York on Sunday.

The Secret Service has been tight-lipped about the model, but reports have suggested the car is based on a truck platform and weighs between 15,000 and 20,000 pounds (6,803 and 9,071 kg). The model is also rumored to accommodate up to seven people as the rear passenger compartment has room for the president and four advisers.

The new limo replaces the previous Beast which has been in service since 2009. Given the age of its predecessor, it’s likely the new limo has a more modern technology.

Trump isn’t the only world leader to receive a new limo this year as Russian President Vladimir Putin showed off the Aurus Senat at his inauguration in May. The model was recently detailed at the Moscow Motor Show and it features a Rolls-Royce inspired design and two engine options.

The entry-level Senat has a 4.4-liter V8 engine and electric motor that work together to produce 590 hp (439 kW / 598 PS). The car can also be equipped with a 6.6-liter V12 that reportedly produces 848 hp (632 kW / 859 PS).

    Looks good. So was he riding The Beast the whole time?

    • Matt

      Yes he was using the same Beast used by Obama until now.

      • Honda NSX-R

        Wouldn’t it have been awkward for him to ride Obama’s limo?

        • Matt

          No different to living in ‘Obama’s’ Whitehouse I guess. Obama’s Beast was developed during the Bush era anyway.

  • Putin’s Beast is much better looking.

    • Matt

      True, but probably not as heavily fortified (and not based on a truck).

    • Погонщик жидов

      Putin’s cars were copied from Rolls-Royce and other cars. They do not have a single Russian part ))) Russians like the Chinese and Jews, they are all just stealing.

      Shut up

          Unemployment is the lowest in 74 years! Get back to work and stop living off the government.

          • ksegg

            Shouldn’t it be the government should stop living off me and taxing me so damn much. 😀

  • charlotteharry57

    Pretty darn unattractive. Putin’s is MUCH better looking. The gals would say the better-looking dude gets the better looking limo, I guess…

    • Matt

      Putin’s limo is an actual car though. This is basically an armoured military vehicle disguised as a car, so the proportions are never going to be sleek.

  • João Coelho 🇵🇹

    Shouldn’t the windows be smoked? So you can’t see inside?

    • Honda NSX-R

      Wouldn’t people still know that it’s the president riding inside…

      • stelvio

        But what if the president wants to grope someone?

      • João Coelho 🇵🇹

        Well usually, I think, there are three limos so the people don’t know on which he his riding in.

        • Honda NSX-R

          Makes complete sense now

  • Liam Paul

    put him in a yugo

  • Perry F. Bruns

    I figured he’d be in a ZiL.

  • joey

    Looks so much better than the last one

  • Stephane Pednò

    I prefer the Aurus Senat from Russia

  • MarketAndChurch

    I wish Cadillac would make a non-armored one for civilian sales

    • Mike anonymous

      Yeah, I was just thinking that. this actually does not look half bad… why can’t Cadillac make a vehicle like this. It would probably sell well (although I can think of a few good reasons they wouldn’t be allowed to).

  • Craig

    As far as I know….. how much power the engines make has always been a closely guarded secret. Until now?

  • Tinky-Winky

    Considering Trump’s taste I was expecting something much more flamboyant but it looks just like a regular 5yo Cadillac, only bigger. I like this understated design much more than Putler’s vulgar Rolls Royce knock-off.

  • sidewaysspin

    Impressive

  • Honda NSX-R

    Yeah, I even wrote a comment suggesting that I was trolling but they still mad 😂

  • Погонщик жидов

    The Chinese also use other’s transmissions, because they can not do their own )) And the design is stupidly stolen from Rolls-Royce. Russians, Chinese and Jews are fake people.
