We all know about Air Force One – but once that flying tank lands, how exactly does the President move from point A to point B? The answer is ‘The Beast’, a hulking 20,000-pound Cadillac limousine that is so guarded it puts the Death Star to shame. Given that most cars do not weigh anywhere near that much - a traditional Cadillac Escalade weighs a little less than 6,000 pounds - where are all those extra pounds going? And does the President need them? The Beast is airtight so it can withstand a chemical attack. The car’s doors are famously difficult to open, requiring some serious strength if you want to escape the belly of the Beast. CLICK HERE to learn more about this incredible presidential vehicle.?
