PostHeaderIcon President Donald Trump’s New Presidential Cadillac Limo “Beast” is Finally in Service

The new presidential limousine, loosely similar in appearance to the Cadillac CT6, is finally in service and was first seen in public in New York earlier this week where the UN General Assembly gathered. It is the first new presidential limousine in almost a decade.

No other president’s means of transportation is as famous as that of the president of the United States. Commonly known as ’The Beast’. The introduction of the automobile as the president’s means of transportation didn’t happen right away, though, the first president to have a fleet being William Howard Taft in the early part of the last century.

As time went by, the limousines grew in both size and weight when it was decided that bulletproof glass and bodywork is a necessity. Nowadays, the presidential limousines, codenamed ’Stagecoach’, run on truck underpinnings and their specifications are secret.

The fact that President Donald Trump was getting a new limousine was, though, an open secret with the car having been seen testing in camouflage back in April. The previous state car, which debuted back in 2009 under President Barack Obama, was also a Cadillac-badged vehicle.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Maybach Pullman

If Maybach is the top of the luxury Mercedes pyramid, then the Pullman models are the cap stone. These things just ooze opulence from every pore, and now there’s a new one sporting a restyled front end, new interior color schemes, and the latest audio entertainment features, all packed into more 20 feet of baller automobile.

Continue reading to learn more about the 2018 Mercedes-Maybach Pullman.

“In the corners you’ll find large 20-inch wheels, which, on any other car, would look enormous. However, on the Merc, the rollers looks just right.”

In case you were unaware, the 2019 Mercedes-Maybach Pullman is a true chauffeur-driven limousine model. Viewed head on, it looks like a traditional S-Class, but take one step to the side, and you’ll discover this thing is stretched out to an impressive 6.5 meters (21.3 feet) in length.

New for the 2018 model year, the Pullman gets an updated radiator grille insert with polished vertical slats. Merc says the grille was inspired by a pinstriped suit, and the aesthetic was fist previewed in the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 concept coupe that dropped back in 2016.

In the corners you’ll find large 20-inch wheels, which, on any other car, would look enormous. However, on the Merc, the rollers looks just right, especially with their broad 10-hole design, something that’s characteristic of the Mercedes-Maybach brand.

Outside, the paint hues can be had with the same two-tone finishes seen on the non-limo’d Maybach S-Class. Customization options are plentiful here if you wanna mix it up even further.

“Step into the cabin, and you’ll find a “club lounge” layout that’s on par with the finest luxury hotels out there.”

There’s also new color combinations for the interior appointment, including magma grey, mahogany brown, and a silk beige/deep sea blue.

Step into the cabin, and you’ll find a “club lounge” layout that’s on par with the finest luxury hotels out there, and as many as four passengers will find accommodations. There are several standard features that make the Pullman a beacon of comfort and opulence, including twin executive forward-facing seats. The leather upholstery gets a quilted finish, as well as massage functions, heating and ventilation, and a rising foot rest as well.

There’s also an electrically operated partition screen that separates the driver from the rear seating area. Interestingly, Mercedes added a new front-view camera that allows those in the back to watch the traffic status even when the partition is closed.

Finally, there’s a “2 cabin sound” feature for the stereo, with independent controls added for the front and rear passengers, thus allowing for a custom music selection depending on where you’re seated.

And of course we can’t forget the twin-turbo V-12 under the hood. This lump makes as much as 621 velvety-smooth horses, which is quite a lot of muscle, but considering this thing is about as heavy as a battleship, it still takes as much as 6.5 seconds for it to reach 60 mph.

Pricing for all this luxury starts at roughly half a million euros. Order books are open now.

PostHeaderIcon Audi A8L Extended

In early 2016 our paparazzi spotted a longer-than-usual Audi A8 somewhere in snowy Sweden. The limousine had six doors instead of four and looked awfully similar to the vehicle that was delivered to Harald V, the King of Norway, earlier last month, but the German license plate suggested the car in question was a test vehicle. Three months have passed since then and Audi confirmed that it has began producing a six-door variant of its full-size sedan.

Dubbed A8L Extended, the ultra-long, luxury model was conceived as a special one-off for an unnamed “European customer” and development took almost a year. Having received further requests for the custom sedan, Audi is launching the A8L Extended as a bespoke, limited-edition model that will rival offerings from Mercedes-Maybach.

Details about the six-door A8 and its availability are still scant, but Audi has provided just enough details and photos to learn more about the brand’s first venture into the ultra-luxury market. Have a look at our in-depth review below and stay tuned for information on pricing and options that will be made available for the XXL sedan.

Updated 04/11/2016: Audi dropped the official details on the A8L Extended.

PostHeaderIcon Presidents Day Special – Getting To Know "The Beast"

Ever since U.S. President John F. Kennedy was assassinated inside a 1961 Lincoln Continental convertible, the U.S. government has made it a top priority to build presidential cars that effectively resembled heavily fortified citadels on four wheels. Over the years, presidential cars have been designed strictly for the purpose of keeping the president safe.

Such has been the case during the administration of President Barack Obama. Ever since becoming the 44th president of the United States, President Obama has relied on a limousine often referred to as “Cadillac One,” or as it’s more popularly known, “The Beast.”

The Beast is the latest in a long line of limousines that have been put into service for the Commander-in-Chief. Each presidential car typically has a four-year lifespan, although some presidents who have served multiple terms, including Obama, have opted to stick with their first presidential car. That’s why the Beast, which was delivered to the White House in 2009, is still in use today. That said, the president did take delivery of another presidential car in 2011, an armored Prevost bus that has been nicknamed “Ground Force One.”

So seeing as today is the last President’s Day the Obama administration will have, let’s take a look at the presidential car that has served him faithfully since 2009 and try looking ahead to the next presidential car for the next administration.

PostHeaderIcon Jaguar XF

Jaguar first pulled the sheets on its XF mid-size luxury sedan in 2007 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Since then, the lithe four-door has collected a good deal of critical praise, not to mention more than its fair share of sales. The second generation was introduced just last year, bringing significant updates like a lightweight aluminum body and higher levels of performance. Customers loved it, and the XF contributed nearly 29 percent of Jaguar’s total global fleet volume for the first 6 months of the year. Now, Jag is looking to keep the ball rolling, and it added new diesel power paired with AWD traction in order to do so.

Overall, it’s a pretty minor update, especially when you consider the furious turnover that is the industry norm these days. Nevertheless, the addition of a diesel to the lineup could be seen as a rather bold move given the current public perception of oil burners. Will it take the XF to the next level, or will it end up falling flat?

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Maybach Pullman

With a tradition that harks back to the 1930s, when special variants of the “Grosser Mercedes” were used by heads of state around the world, the longest and most luxurious version of the largest Mercedes-Benz model in its lineup has always been a special car. Since the second “Grosser Mercedes,” aka the “600” or the “Dictator-mobile,” entered production in 1964, every generation of the S-Class has also had at least one longer version sporting the “Pullman” moniker. With a wheelbase so long that it can accomodate 2+2 seats facing each other behind the two front passengers, not to mention the option of body armor, Pullman Mercedes’ have always been regarded as the cars of choice for heads of state, dignitaries and similar VIPs.

With the 2016 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class already filling a more luxurious niche above the “plebeian” 2015 S600, the German carmaker has unveiled an even longer and more luxurious version, bringing back the Pullman name. Since several pre-production prototypes of the new model have already been spied at or around Brabus’ headquarters in Bottrop, it seems that the ultra-long Mercedes-Maybach Pullman was developed and will probably be manufactured by the famed tuner.

Updated 03/03/2015: Mercedes unveiled the new Maybach S600 Pullman Limousine at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
