    For the life of me, I just can't imagine who could've signed off on that car. It's friggin' UGLY!
    Wait a second. Maybe, this is a plan to force a total redesign of the car. If the sales numbers go into the toilet, corporate usually loosens up the purse strings faster.

    I think it could have been designed by a pscyology major ...you know when you see a kid in the mall thats so ugly that you have to stare ?

    i bet thats why it looks like it does , youll have to stare at it so much that youll be forced to buy it so you can continue to stare at it....

    its so ugly if i had to choose between it and a new charger ....ID TAKE THE CHARGER !!!

    I just hope the real thing looks better......I know that the president car is completely different then a real deville but the front and rear look spot on......soon you will see conversion of Escalade to Deville much like the Escalade to H2........wait....isnt that what were seeing now>?

    The back looks great. But the front made me throw up in my mouth a little. Was that grille approved by Stevie Wonder or something? I think this is going to be a disaster for Cadillac, and just as they were almost at the top again. I'm glad it's not going to be called Deville. What a shame.

    Re: President Bush to debut 2006 DTS limo

    OK, I've stopped dry heaving and have had a few minutes to think about this. Nothing seems right about this car. Besides the fact it is probably will go down as one of the ugliest Cadillacs ever, it doesn't make sense for the White House to get a new limo so soon. If you look back, they buy cars on roughly 10 year intervals. The main reason is the cars are so expensive and take so much time develop that it isn't practical to get a new car every few years. The current car is only about 4 years old.

    So this leads to my theory, maybe this is the same limo as the one that debuted in 2001, only updated to look like the new Deville. Maybe Cadillac wanted to cash in on the recent wave of success, so they decided to rush a makeover so it could debut for the inaugaration. Hopefully the production cars will benefit from a few more months of developement and come out looking much better.

    I hope to God this is the case anyway, otherwise I'm going to seriously start doubting Cadillac's future.

    Re: President Bush to debut 2006 DTS limo

    Good grief you guys,

    I'm sure that ugliness or beauty would be the last thing on Mr. Bush's mind if there were bullits impacting the bullit resistant glass. It was designed for that purpose, ya'll should be grateful he didn't go with a Lexus!

    It's not THAT bad looking. It's a bit off-proportion around the windows because of the thickness of the glass.

    For regular Devilles (like the DTS) they should offer a color keyed grille to hide the fact some people don't like the big toothy grin. I think they are going with a BIG GRILLE because of the popularity of the 300's influence in sales.

    I'll reserve my opinion for the regular production Devilles until I see one, but for the limo it's not too terrible, but that's because it's a limo.

    If true, at least it didn't cost the taxpayers anything?

    Maybe there was upgraded terrorist protection, bullit resistance offered on the '06 that the administration felt was worth having?

    Omg this is what happens when you try to make the Deville look reminiscent of a STS and Escalade at the same time!

    Id want to see the front head on though to make my final decisions. I do have say though that the rear end reminds me of a Chevrolet Impala.

    Everyone calm down, I got some Pepto for those upset stomachs. I found this on Cheersandgears.com. Someone put the limo front on a standard sedan body. If this is any indication as to what the production car will look like, I think we'll be good. Still doesn't change the fact that the limo is ass ugly though.
