The vehicle has a body-on-frame layout with a steel structure and external carbon fiber body panels. The steel frame is left exposed in the sills area, where it serves as a side step, and in the body cutlines area.

The car should add more safety features it’s to open for a presidential ride. We all know that we should always protect the most important person in a country.

This is the best limousine. It’s perfect for parades as well as meetings were publicity is a must. It can be used as a pope’s limousine. This is superb.

It’s like a boat!, but I see that the interior’s made of high quality leather. Doesn;t he fear about his security?
