Luxury Die Cast "Beast" Presidential Limo?

I saw these at Big Lots today for $9.00. It says it's 1/43 scale. I've mostly gotten away from 1/43 collecting, but if an interesting subject comes along I'm not above picking it up, especially for a price like that. But to my eye, it looked... big. Maybe it's just me, and I suppose given it's purpose, heritage and the parts that went into it it might be a rather good-size vehicle. I googled a bit while I ate lunch trying to find some size info on the real article but didn't turn anything up in the time I had. Anybody have any thoughts on the matter? It looks nice, wouldn't mind having one, but if it's way out of scale then I'd probably pass on it. Thanks...

I got one from Big Lots as well. It doesn't seem that out of scale with the rest of my 1:43 but otherwise I couldn't say. I did read where the real thing is so massive and heavy (bullet proof everything) it is actually built on a truck frame and for visibility/security it is slightly taller and more angular than the original Cadillac design. You might find this interesting:
