US Secret Service seeks new armored limo for president

By Kevin Davis on Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has issued a request for proposal (RFP) for a new armored limo that would possibly replace President Obama’s limo The Beast.

The RFP calls for a newly-designed armored limo built “in accordance with [classified] government-provided specifications.”

The manufacturer will develop a concept, design its armor, develop an engine and chassis capable of taking abuse, and eventually test its limo and armor with live fire exercises. A fixed-price contract will be awarded to the manufacturer that can meet all the government’s requirements.

The department intends to award the contract by September 29, 2013.
