President Obama already has a sweet ride.

But Homeland Security is looking for the next-generation presidential limousine for Obama’s replacement in 2017.

It can’t be just any car, according to the proposal.

“Phase 1, armor development, is currently underway. Phase 2 work will include integration of the armor design developed during Phase 1 of the program. Phase 2 requirements will include selection and integration of final automotive components, chassis, interior, exterior, and test vehicle fabrication and automotive component testing. Phase 3 will be focused on automotive validation and Phase 4 production of vehicles.”

The proposal also must come from a major domestic U.S. auto manufacturer.

The Obama administration plans to award the contract by Aug. 29.
