Car enthusiast and former late-night talk show host James Douglas Muir Leno recently had the opportunity to host the current Cadillac-branded presidential limo in his garage for an interview with two secret service presidential detail members. There’s still much about these large vehicles that remains unknown to the general public for national security reasons, and Leno was not permitted to open the doors or windows, let alone inspect what’s under the hood. Despite these limitations, the video from Jay Leno’s Garage is definitely worth watching, providing insight into the immense size of The Beast, along with entertaining stories from the individuals who have driven it.

Regardless of your specific political views, it is impressive that General Motors created a nearly indestructible vehicle for one of the world’s most significant figures to travel in, right? It is somewhat amusing that even a custom-built behemoth like The Beast can experience common issues like the air conditioning unexpectedly failing. The President of the United States had to endure a ride in a car without air conditioning on a hot day. It just goes to show, he’s just like us!
