Obama's Armored Limo BOTTOMS OUT in Ireland

5/23/2011 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

President Obama's Secret Service probably needs a whole new set of underwear -- after the Prez's armored limo CRASHED into a nasty speed bump in Dublin today ... and was instantly immobilized.

Talk about luck of the Irish.

UPDATE: A rep for the Secret Service claims Obama was NOT in the vehicle that bottomed out due to a "slight miscalculation" -- telling us, it was a spare limousine carrying staff and support personnel only. There were no injuries.

It looks like thats Bush's older ride. They run decoy limos. He does have a new ride, called the Beast.

@Botz, you are indeed correct. This is limo Plate 002, a GW Bush era secret service limo, that the SS often uses for current POTUS/FLOTUS on oversees trips, along with at least one other limo. POTUS was in fact in this car as it got stuck. They don't seem to use the "Beast" (i.e., the 2009 limo) oversees very often (I have not seen the Beast on any oversees trips).
