Cadillac STS

The Cadillac STS has not changed much since its birth in 2005. The only exciting thing about it was the supercharged STS-V which has been eliminated from the lineup. However, those looking for an alternative to European models can feel at home with the STS. The Cadillac STS is powered by either a 3.6L V6 engine producing 302hp and 272 lb-ft of torque or a 4.6L V8 delivering 320hp and 315 lb-ft of torque.

These engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and are available in all-wheel drive.

Car Infographics: Obama#8217;s Cadillac One is a Tank!

Aspiring presidential candidates are already busy gearing up for the 2012 elections with hopes of becoming the most powerful man in the U.S. It#8217;s a dirty job, but somebody has to do it, and luckily they have a presidential limo that can withstand the job.

At first glance, the Cadillac One just looks like a modified Cadillac DTS. but General Motors did not actually assign the presidential state car a specific model name. This may be due to the fact that it carries many different components from many different GM models, including Cadillac Escalade headlights, side mirrors, and door handles; Cadillac STS sedan taillights and back up lights; and what looks to be the GMC Topkick commercial truck#8217;s chassis and driveline. GM went through a lot of trouble building the perfect presidential vehicle, but what happens to the car after the base build is what makes it capable of keeping our president utterly and unbelievably safe.

Cadillac STS

For starters, the car#8217;s chassis has a 5 reinforced steel plate that runs underneath the car in case a bomb finds its way there. Then the entire bodywork is a combination of dual hardness steel, aluminum, titanium, and ceramic which breaks up projectiles upon impact. The doors and gas tank are armour plated, but the gas tank also receives a specially designed foam that prevents it from exploding. The tires are Kevlar reinforced and are shred and puncture resistant.

If anyone successfully tears them apart, the steel rims underneath the tires will allow them to get the Cadillac One to safety.

The Cadillac One also has a number of accessories that enable it to solve problems quicker than they come around, including night vision cameras, pump action shotguns, tear gas cannons, and blood. Yes, that#8217;s right. The Cadillac One is equipped with bottles of the president#8217;s blood just in case he gets hurt and needs a blood transfusion.

Take that, suckers!
