There are souped-up cars, and then there’s the “Presidential Beast.” The automobile that carts the President of the United States to and fro, known in some circles as Cadillac One and in others as “the Beast,” has all the bells and whistles you’d expect the Commander in Chief’s wheels to have, and then some. This special examines the handiwork of the Texas Armoring Corporation, the team behind the Beast, by demonstrating the numerous ways that the typical car can be compromised and putting their armor to the test with assorted ballistic exercises. Batman, eat your heart out.
