Obama’s wheels: Secret Service to unveil new presidential limo

As a candidate, Barack Obama promoted hybrid cars.
As president, he’ll be handed the keys to one. Sort of.artcadillac1cnn Obamas wheels: Secret Service to unveil new presidential limo
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.

In truth, the new presidential limo is a Cadillac, Krell said, although it is “not a direct extension of any single model.”
“The presidential vehicle is built to precise and special specifications, undergoes extreme testing and development, and also incorporates many of the top aspects of Cadillac’s ‘regular’ cars — such as signature design, hand-cut-and-sewn interiors, etc.,” Krell told CNN.

It may not be the prettiest car out there, but it really is kind of cool.
