Obama's Car Gets Stuck

Man, all a terrorist has to do is put a speed bump in the way! What complete disaster considering they spent a ton of years and money getting this thing built and tested. Put a hydraulic system in that bitch and be sure to fire every single person that worked on building the car.

Re: Obama's Car Gets Stuck

Looks like it was the sharp angle of the ramp heading out into the street that did it. That's funny, but if that was a situation where the president needed to get out in a hurry for security purposes, he and his crew would have been in trouble.

Anyway, I'm guessing that's the last time that ever happens.

RTÉ.ie Extra Video: US president is served a pint in Moneygall - Video - RTÉ News Player

I suspect they were thinking about Happy Hour and got excited.

Re: Obama's Car Gets Stuck

I'm surprised it does not have those air shocks so Obama could bounce the front.

Re: Obama's Car Gets Stuck

Crazy. The State Dept. customized Suburbans are a far better option. I've seen them close up, pretty much a tank on a reinforced Suburban chassis. They really need to customize those for POTUS rather than that PoS in the video.

Agree design team should be fired.

Re: Obama's Car Gets Stuck

stretched wheelbase + low ground clearance = potential for high centering

Not a big deal, IMO. The presidential limousine is the most secure vehicle in the world.

Re: Obama's Car Gets Stuck

Doesnt seem like a big deal to me either..... Good thing this happend in Ireland and not India or something. Also even though a big ass SUV might make more sense i think this is a case of function following form. If the only priority was to protect the president his ride would probably look more like a batmobile, but the President needs to look good and come acorss as none threatening when he goes out.

Maybe like this:


Conquest Vehicles | Knight XV

It's a getaway car that can't getaway.

The thing is based off of a GMC topkick. Until you step up to a Peterbilt or Kenworth, there really is no beefier vehicle it can be based off of. A Suburban, besides just ground clearance in this case, would be a step down.

Also, the presidential limo has pepper spray cannons that can be tasked when the crowd gets out of hand. Doesn't get much more Bat-Mobile than that.

A lot of the car is classified, so I'm sure there are many more tricks up its sleeve.
