Luxury, security, authority: Cars of the G8 leaders

Canada

As the host of this year's G8 summit of leaders, there's a good chance we'll get to see Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper arrive in the Governor General's official state car that he often borrows: an armoured, long-wheelbase Cadillac DTS. The Caddy is usually surrounded by a motorcade of a half-dozen or more vehicles, including Chevrolet Tahoes and Expresses, manned by members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.As the G8 President for 2010, Prime Minister Harper has been busy setting the agenda for this year's summit. Maybe a bit too busy. Although Canada is the only G8 member to not have its own native car company (i.e. General Motors in the U.S., or Fiat in Italy), we think the Ontario-built Chrysler 300 (also available in stretched limo form), would make for a more appropriate ride.
