Inside the Rocket-Proof Obamamobile [Cars]


I love this cutaway illustration of the new Cadillac One by John Lawson, Obama included. Specially things like "Doors: eight-inch thick and the weight of a 757 door". Other highlights:

• It can withstand rocket impacts and it's perfectly sealed against biochemical attacks.
• The petrol tank can withstand a direct hit thanks to a special foam and armor-plating.
• Its body is made of dual hardness steel, aluminum, titanium, and ceramics to "break up posible projectiles".
• The tyres are Kevlar-reinforced with steel rims underneath so it can run away no matter what.
• "Defense" accessories include: Night vision cameras, pump-action shotguns, tear gas cannons.
• It comes with bottles of blood compatible with the President's blood.

The only thing I don't get is this: It has a ten-CD changer. A CD changer? What is this? 1994? [Daily Mail]
