If you saw it on tv yesterday you would have seen how thick those doors are.

I am sure it is a laptop.

Yes it was, and as for vehicles I don't know if they usually get a new one. I know they completely redesign Air Force One everytime there is a new President.

Yep. Doesn't matter how many cylinders you have, it's all in the displacement and how long the stroke of the piston is. Many commercial trucks today just use straight six engines that are 8.0-litres or bigger and they don't put out that much horsepower, but the torque you get is crazy.

How is that a lie? It is very much possible to do all that. The car will obviously be really heavy, but doesn't mean it's not feasible.

Yeah 0-60 in 15 seconds? What if you need to get away from the bad guys

Why go for a diesel anyway, I wonder how much BHP it produces.

Obama has like a 50 vehicle motorcade following him at all times.

Also, It would be very hard for the bad guys to penetrate the presidential li...tank
I hear it can survive an rpg and land mines with minimal damage.

Diesel is more economical, and the emissions aren't as bad as those of gas cars. I think they are good, and that all cars should have diesel engines. Seriously, I don't think hybrids are there yet, but diesel is totally there.
