The Presidential State Car is the official state car used by the President of the United States. Throughout history, a variety of vehicles have both officially and unofficially been acknowledged as the presidential vehicle. Since the late 1930s, the U.S. government has specially commissioned vehicles for presidential use, often specifying advanced communications equipment, special convenience features, armor plating, and defense countermeasures. American cars are traditionally chosen for the role. The most recent vehicle to be used as the presidential car is a GMC Topkick-based, Cadillac-badged limousine often referred to as "Cadillac One" (a reference to the U.S. presidential aircraft, Air Force One) or as "The Beast". The current presidential limousine entered service on January 20, 2009. According to GM, the manufacturer, the "2009 Cadillac Presidential Limousine" is the first not to carry a specific model name. The vehicle's outward appearance is that of an enlarged Cadillac DTS limousine; however, the vehicle's chassis and driveline are actually sourced from the GMC Topkick commercial truck. Styling elements are sourced from a variety of GM vehicles; for example, the car uses Cadillac Escalade headlights, not DTS units. Although a price tag has not been announced, according to London-based newspaper The Guardian, each limousine cost the U.S. Government US$300,000.
