    He maybe the president of the most powerful nation in the world, but his car still needs filling up with petrol. Workers at a garage in Pimlico today told of their astonishment after Barack Obama's car and the presidential entourage pulled up for refuelling. The armoured limousine, nicknamed "The Beast", arrived with six other vehicles and police escort at a BP petrol station on Vauxhall Bridge Road during the president's state visit to London. Onlookers said the cars took up the entire forecourt when they arrived yesterday at around 3pm.
  • The best-protected car in the world defeated by an Irish ramp: Obama's armour-plated limo gets stuck

    It's designed to protect the President from terror attacks but Barack Obama was left red-faced after one of his armour-plated Cadillacs was brought to a halt as it left the U.S. Embassy in Dublin. The gigantic bomb-proof General Motors vehicle, with eight-inch thick steel on its door, didn't even make it as far as the road outside the consulate. The car had to be abandoned after the collision in front of waving crowds while Mr Obama and his wife were en route to his ancestral home in County Offaly. Embarrassing: One of Barack Obama's fleet of armoured cars gets stuck...

Barack Obama and his wife, en route to his ancestral home in County Offaly, had to abandon the car after the collision in front of waving crowds in Dublin.

    US President Barack Obama's heavily armoured Cadillac, nicknamed "The Beast", became stuck on a ramp at the US embassy in Dublin, RTE state radio reported Monday. The first cars in the presidential motorcade emerged up the ramp from the car park beneath the complex in Ballsbridge and passed through the gates without incident, but The Beast quickly ran into trouble and got beached. "The Beast was coming along and suddenly there was a loud kind of bang, metal-on-metal, grinding, crunching noise and the car was stuck," an RTE reporter said. The reporter said that as it drove out, the car...

    Last week President Obama announced his new ‘Green Fleet’ plan that would see all of the government’s 600,000 vehicles be either hybrids, plug-in electrics or flex-fuel models by 2015. There are, however, a few exceptions – most notably ‘The Beast’. The nickname for the President’s armored Cadillac limousine, also referred to as Cadillac One, it is exempt from the new rules. Secret Service Special Agent Robert Novy confirmed as much to Fox News, commenting that, “certain specialized vehicles with law enforcement and security specifications are not subject to this directive.” Included in that list is ‘The Beast’, which features 5-inch...

    Global Warming allies left scratching their heads as Dear Leader arrives at summit in a 8mpg Panzer... Most Americans are no longer surprised by Obama's do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do liberal duplicity on issues such as smoking, green lifestyles, or personal modesty/frugality. And anyone who did actual DD on Obama's environmental platform back in '08 can tell you his last ride before arriving in DC to heal the earth was a 300hp Chrysler 300 Hemi. But the starry-eyed European Left is still coming out of the hopenchange ether, so many of them were appalled that even as the EU's left-leaning leaders -Obama's best carbon-trading...

    The heads of government in London for the G-20 summit are discussing serious and weighty issues, which in time will be duly reported on, but right now the British press is entranced by the sheer size of President Obama's traveling entourage. And no wonder. Obama arrived with 500 staff in tow, including 200 Secret Service agents, a team of six doctors, the White House chef and kitchen staff with the president's own food and water. And, according to the Evening Standard, he also came with "35 vehicles in all, four speech writers and 12 teleprompters." For sure, our president is...

    Barack Obama's getting a Cadillac-styled new Presidential Limo tomorrow. While nice, we're more interested in the Gatling gun-equipped Suburban that follows Cadillac One. Here's video of the bullet-spraying Chevy in action.Is your job tough? Like, leader of the free world tough? Do you have people constantly throwing shoes at you? It's time you replied with a measured, appropriate response — and that response is a Dillon Aero machine gun turret mounted on top of a Chevy Suburban — just like the one the President's got!

    It's official call sign is Cadillac One, but as the new presidential limo it will always be known as the Obamamobile. As the most protected president in U.S. history, Barack Obama's official car naturally offers a sanctuary against an assassin's bullet - or even rocket attack. Where ever Obama travels in the world the stretch limo, which is based on a Cadillac saloon, will travel with him.

    As a candidate, Barack Obama promoted hybrid cars. As president, he'll be handed the keys to one. Sort of. Shortly after taking the oath of office, Obama will climb into the Mother of All Hybrids -- part car, part truck and, from the looks of it, part tank. In keeping with recent tradition, the Secret Service will place a brand-new presidential limousine into service January 20 to drive the new president on the 2-mile jaunt down Pennsylvania Avenue during the inaugural parade. Already, spy photos of the limo -- with patches of gray primer -- have leaked out. And already,...
