The Cadillac limousine got its ‘Beast' nickname (also called Cadillac One) ever since it was first introduced back in 2009, when Barack Obama became the US president. The reason for such a name was its sheer size and the host of advanced and sophisticated equipment it came with.

Though most of the technical details of the presidential limousine are kept as a secret, sources say that the Donald Trump's new Beast is based on a GMC TopKick truck platform and weighs nothing short of six tonnes. This fact is particularly interesting since upon first glance, the Cadillac Beast looks like an elongated CT6 or XTS sedan.

The headlights seem identical to that of the new Cadillac Escalade SUV while the grille is in line with the American brand's latest design philosophy. The interiors will feature a lot of updates and upgrades compared to the older version but chances for the public to see them are bleak.

General Motors have tried to make the styling cues of the Cadillac Beast as subtle as possible but ultimately, Donald Trump's official car is larger than even most of the full-size SUVs and trucks on the market today. The large dimensions are mainly the result of the military-grade armour employed on its panels.

As mentioned before, there are no official sources confirming what's under the bonnet but being a six-tonne-car, the engine will have oceans of torque-surge and power to propel the car from all kinds of tricky situations. Rumours suggest that it is powered by a massive twin-turbocharged V8 engine while some others claim it has a Duramax diesel unit.
