Powerful men and women – heads of state, royalty, and other high ranking officials – travel in highly technical and often well-armored vehicles. Presidential cars are part of a politicians’ identity when they’re in public. 

Often, the vehicles and the politicians originate from the same country. That’s why you won’t find Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, ride in a French Citroën DS or Britain's very own Jaguar. After all, these models must proudly represent their country of origin. 

We’ve compiled 13 vehicles and matched them with their respected heads of state, or other VIP. Can you guess which politician rides in which vehicle? Click through the slideshow to find out.
