Speaking of “The Beast”, these two Cadillac will take turn to carry the most powerful man of the US. The one chosen each time is called “Stagecoach” while the other is referred to “Spare.” “The Beast” is equipped with 5-inch thick bullet-proof windows, rocket-propelled grenades, pump-action shotguns and a variety of protective systems. The doors even have no keyholes so that the technique to open passenger doors remain secret to service team of the President only.

Along with the President in every trip, assistance teams ranging from personal security guards, CAT (Counter Assault Teams) to intelligent personnel are also present for timely support.
