State Limousine

(insert Presidential Seal/Coat of Arms/Standard here)

New Zealand

The Prime Minister used to travel in one of two cars, one being a Holden Statesman sedan or Ford Fairlane, followed by the other vehicle containing their security detail. But as of December 2007, New Zealand has bought a fleet (34) of BMW 730Ld limousines as its new fleet of ministerial cars which were commissioned in 2008. This was the first time in recent decades that the government had not gone with Australian Ford or Holden vehicles. The estimated purchase price per unit is NZ$ 69,900<ref>Blog: New Zealand government splashes out on BMW</ref><ref>New Zealand government dumps Ford and Holden for BMWs</ref>
