President Obama's limousine is nicknamed "the Beast." The brand new bus in which the President is currently traveling the Midwest on a three-day tour could be called "the Behemoth." Pitch-black, hulking and bristling with secret communications technology, the vehicle was commissioned by the Secret Service at a cost of $1.1 million. (A second identical bus will eventually be used on the campaign trail of the future 2012 Republican presidential candidate.) Officials are naturally tight-lipped about specs, but if the Beast is anything to go by, this behemoth will likely be able to withstand bullets, small bombs and chemical attacks.  More images after the jump. via autoblog
