The U.S. Secret Service is using its new armored presidential limousine in New York to shuttle President Donald Trump around this week as he attends the United Nations General Assembly meetings.

The exterior armor plating of the 2018 Cadillac is reportedly eight-inches thick, with its doors weighing the same as those on a Boeing 757 aircraft, reports the website Auto Spies. The site says  [1]the bulletproof windows are 5 inches thick and its nearly bus-size tires can run-flat to keep the car in motion for some distance.

The interior is sealed to protect against a chemical attack.
