Philippines

The President of the Philippines uses two black, bullet-proof, armored Mercedes-Benz W221 S-Class and a BMW E38 750iL, whereas one is a decoy vehicle. In convoys, the President is escorted by the Presidential Security Group (PSG) using the combination of the following patrol vehicles: Toyota Landcruiser, Nissan Patrol, Toyota Camry, Chevrolet Suburban, and police 400cc motorcycles. Motorcades of high-security involve as much as 20 vehicles, depending on the president's destination. The presidential cars are designated and registered a plate number of 1 or the word PANGULO (President). The limousine bears the Flag of the Philippines and the Presidential Standard. Occasionally, the President boards a Toyota Coaster during provincial trips. The Vice President of the Philippines on the other hand uses a Mercedes Benz W140 S-Class also backed up by the Presidential Security Group or PSG.

The Office of the President has also owned various cars over the decades including a 1937 Chrysler Airflow, which served as the very first Philippine Presidential limousine for Manuel L. Quezon.
