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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]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 [I]only[/I] 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.[/FONT][/COLOR]

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.
