Did you know that retired US armoured Beast Limos are destroyed with explosives to keep its secrets?
Decommissioned limos are destroyed with bullets and explosives rounds with the assistance of Secret Service.
Designed from the ground up by the Secret Service, the US President Joe Biden’s $1.5 million “Cadillac One,” aka “The Beast,” is a moving fortress that is impenetrable by bullets and bombs.
And the president has twelve (12) of these identical 18 feet long limousines in rotation, two of which travels with the President Biden wherever he goes.
The full capabilities as well as the technology used in building each of these 20,000 pounds mobile bunkers (of course) remains a secret.
And to keep the secret from intruders, decommissioned limos are dismantled and destroyed with bullets and explosives rounds with the assistance of Secret Service.
The first is to demonstrate the automobile’s effectiveness against such weaponry. Explosives are also destroyed to hide the secrets of its manufacturers, armouring and defensive abilities.
