Obama`s New Presidential Cadillac Limo Revealed

Cadillac specialists have developed an all-new Cadillac Presidential Limousine, for president Obama, continuing a long tradition of Cadillac limousines that have served many US presidents. This model is a completely new design, succeeding the DTS Presidential Limousine that debuted in 2004. The new car incorporates many of the dramatic design and technology features of the new and highly acclaimed Cadillac vehicles in a purpose-built format tailored to specific and exacting specifications befitting presidential transport. On the inside it features a lot of signature design elements of the brand. At the front we can see the car includes the dual-textured grille made famous by the most popular current model of Cadillac, the CTS sport sedan and Escalade. The car is slightly more upright than its predecessor even though it occupies roughly the same overall footprint on the road as the previous model, with a similar size and proportions. Inside the cabin, the model includes the finest examples of design, technology and craftsmanship. Major aspects of the cabin are cut and sewn by hand, the same process used in popular Cadillac models such as the CTS sport sedan. The rear passenger area includes an extensive compartment with ample seating space, outward visibility and useful mobile office features. The car was designed, developed and tested by specialists who adhered to an extensive set of specifications. Security provisions were undertaken at all times during development to ensure the functional capabilities of the car are preserved and confidential. Cadillac has built limousines and special vehicles for US presidents, diplomats, ambassadors and foreign dignitaries since the early 20th century, as icon aspect of the brand that continues today. The center role of the carmaker began during the World War I, when many Cadillac engines and cars were transferred to military and government service because of their superior durability and power.
