The US presidential limousine, nicknamed “The Beast,” is a heavily armored vehicle used to transport the president.

Weighing 20,000 pounds, it is designed with advanced security features like 8-inch thick armor plating, bulletproof glass, tear gas capabilities, and a secure communications system.

“It is safe to say that this car’s security and coded communications systems make it the most technologically advanced protection vehicle in the world,” the assistant director for the US Secret Service’s Office of Protective Operations stated.

The vehicle contains medical supplies like a refrigerator stocked with the president’s blood type.

It can seat up to seven people and features leather seats and water bottle holders.

Accompanied by the presidential motorcade, “The Beast” remains an instantly recognizable symbol of the presidency wherever the president travels, both within the US and abroad.
