President Obama's limo, Ironhide re-formatted?

I recently read in a couple places that the current Presidential limo, informally known as Cadillac One, is built on a GMC Topkick chassis, complete with all-wheel drive and a turbocharged diesel V-8. The Topkick, as you may know, is the basis for Movie Ironhide.

That is all.

A limo? You sure? It would be cool, but an off-road limo wouldn't look very presidential.

I just saw a show on Spike called "That's Tough". They ranked the most heavily armored cars on the planet, and Cadillac One was number one on the list. The number of security features on that car is amazing.

I'm having trouble upoading a pic, but if you google it, you'll see it really doesn't look like a normal limo, it's almost 6 feet high at the roof, for one. Def looks like it could be riding on a truck chassis. Love it.

I have a feeling that it was built from the ground up and shares very few frame parts with any factory vehicle.

More like Frankensteined out of whatever parts GM had lying around. Per the Wiki:
The current presidential limousine entered service on January 20, 2009. According to the manufacturer, General Motors, the 2009 Cadillac presidential limousine is the first not to carry a specific model name. The vehicle's outward appearance carries many current Cadillac styling themes, but doesn't exactly resemble any particular production vehicle. The body itself seems to be a modification of the immediately previous DTS-badged Presidential limousines, but the vehicle's chassis and driveline are assumed to be sourced from the GMC Topkick commercial truck. Many body components are sourced from a variety of Cadillac vehicles; for example, the car apparently uses Cadillac Escalade headlights, side mirrors and door handles. The tail of the car seems to use the taillights and back up lights from the Cadillac STS sedan. Although a price tag has not been announced, there is a rumor that each limousine costs US$300,000

no offence, but that doesn't look like a Topkick at all, otherwise a very cool looking car

Well, no, it wouldn't. The chassis and powertrain are from the Topkick, the body is made up of various Cadillac parts.

Leakin' lubricant! I can't think of a better disguise for an Autobot bodyguard. It'd also be good for security bots under Ironhide or Red Alert's direction. OR... An Obama Headmaster/Transtector. (Ooo... that last one makes me shudder with glee!)
