Compare the images below and see if you can spot the differences between the Bush-era limo and the current Presidential transport, "The Beast". In person an easy giveaway is the sheer size of the Chevrolet Heavy-duty Truck-based limo, but styling cues such as the windshield surround, headlights, more angular fender flares, and a more simplified grille help differentiate "The Beast" from the other vehicles. On a side note, it is said that multiples of the current limousine were produced by GM so that the President will always have access to one or more at any given moment. The exact number of these highly customized cars, nor their price tag, has been publicly revealed.
