It has been a

long lead-up

to the new presidential limousine, but now it appears

General Motors

has “The Beast” in working order for

President Donald Trump

. The new limo was spotted in public for the first time this weekend in New York City in Trump’s motorcade, reportedly on its way to Trump Tower. Said to have been in development since 2013, the $15.8 million armored


is making its debut as Trump’s ride to the U.N. General Assembly this week.

The grille suggests looks along the lines of a

Cadillac CT6 V-Sport

, but the similarities don’t go much beyond that. If you look closely, Trump appears to be in the second “Beast” of the twin truck-based Cadillacs that go by in the video. The limo has a


engine to propel its near-20,000-pound self down the road, but we couldn’t detect much of an oil-burner sound over those gigantic truck tires. This week in NYC will showcase motorcades and fancy presidential limos from around the world, all coming in for the big annual meeting at the U.N. Trump’s presidential limos get shipped around the world too because they have their own plane: a C-17 Globemaster cargo carrier.

There’s no shortage of cool features on the new limo, and we detailed those


. While some of the awesome defense mechanisms are public knowledge, we’re sure there are plenty that remain classified.
