Cars of presidents: what do the heads of state driveNovember 4, 2020
On the eve of the presidential election in the United States, journalists named the cars on which leaders of some countries move.
For example, Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain has two unique Bentley limousines in the Mulliner version in her garage. Both models were presented to the monarch back in 2002 in honor of the 50th anniversary of her reign. Note that not so long ago the Bentley company celebrated its 101st anniversary, at that time Elizabeth herself was already 94 years old, you must agree, there is not such a big age difference. The price of each car is about $ 12 million.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un drives a Mercedes-Maybach S600 Pullman Guard. This car has a 510-horsepower 5.5-liter gasoline turbo engine under the hood. Note that this model began to be produced about ten years ago.
At that time, its cost ranged from 700,000 to 1,000,000 dollars, depending on its equipment. Of course, like all presidents, Kim Jong-un’s car has the highest level of protection. In addition, according to some reports, there are about a hundred luxury cars in his garage, but no one has a list of these models.
The current President of the United States, Donald Trump, drives a Cadillac limousine called Beast. This car was also used by Barack Obama, but for Trump the car was assembled on a special order in 2018. Of course, the car has serious armor protection, a blood supply in case of injury to the president, as well as a safe with weapons for guards and special Goodyea tires. The approximate price of such a limousine is $ 1.5 million.
