So, I developed the concept for the general idea of what I wanted - two turbos sticking out the hood - and handed that over to my team. They came back with a functional way to make that happen and added methanol to get the setup to produce the power that I wanted. We ended up with 1,400 horsepower!

The United States presidential state car, best known as "The Beast", is the official state car of the President of the United States. The current model is a unique Cadillac built upon a medium-duty truck platform, and equipped with many life-saving, offensive, and defensive measures, built to the United States Secret Service's standards. The doors of the presidential state car have no keyholes; the way to open the passenger doors on the limousine is a secret known only to the Secret Service. It has more 5-inch-thick bulletproof glass than the previous model, and only the driver's window opens (to pay tolls).
