The attached video is very interesting and informational. It's about the president's limo driver. You've never seen anything like this before. When you take into account that the Secret Service limo driver for the president is driving a 12,000 lb. automobile at speeds up to 60 mph and in reverse over a one-mile course, it's even more amazing. This car has about 800 horsepower. The vehicle the president uses is weaponized and has a totally independent air conditioning system with its own oxygen supply in case there is any sort of aerosol poison in its vicinity. This video was filmed at Lime Rock Park in Connecticut.

Watch it on YouTube and read the comments. The show is reportedly faked on a computer. BTW, this car looks nothing like "the Beast." Top it off knowing that Cadillac limos of this generation are all FWD.

Well it is clearly fake.

But there are video’s of the Secret Service doing training as they regularly do and the do some amazing thing.

They take one of the different Beast they have and perform all sort of evasive move including some really cool boot leg turns.

The real cars are RWD built in truck chassis and are Diesel. The details are many and most are confidential.

Even the tires are Goodyear Wranglers truck tires made with many special features.

Yet a couple years ago the high sided the car in the middle and got stuck.

I live near the training center and know folks who have taken the evasive driving courses.
