Ten Automakers That Should Build America's Next Presidential Limo

Cadillac has done well despite some minor issues, but it's time for somebody else to build the successor to the Beast, and we think these ten brands would do the best job.


10.) DeLorean

DMC-12s might have been built in Ireland until the whole thing went up in coke dust, but the new DeLoreans are build in Texas and at least one guy knows exactly how to turn them into the perfect limousine of the future.

Bigger is better in America! Add some armor to a semi and what you have is a rolling Oval Office.

8.) Toyota

Camrys and Accords all over the country, right? What better way to assimilate into the general public than with a V12 Toyota?

An LFA would be a lovely weekend ride too, if Obama's successor can hide it from the Secret Service.

7.) General Dynamics

Some say the Ukrainian crisis is the beginning of a new Cold War. In that case, the President will need something heavier.

It would look like this.

6.) Buick

Buick is a brand we all know GM only kept for the Chinese. But for a sportier look, the President shouldn't look further, even if the vehicle would be based on a GM truck.

5.) Duesenberg

Daimler might have lost a lot of money on resurrecting the Maybach brand, but that doesn't mean it can't be done. The ultimate car for the world's most powerful leader.

4.) Chrysler

Simply because it worked in Hudson Hawk! Also, Ferrari parts?

Nothing says 'freedom' quite like a MRAP. And if you think about it, The Beast is not that different...

2.) Lincoln

While Cadillac is doing fine, Lincoln needs a massive push and the Presidential Limo would be just that. No convertible of course...

1.) Tesla

Tesla is the biggest billboard of American technology, so this should be a no brainer.
