Taylor Swift is treating the fans with her soulful vocals, as she recently kickstarted her Eras Tour in the UK with a dreamy performance at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh on June 7. As Swift continues her busy tour schedule, recent reports from The Sun suggest that she has reportedly been riding in a purpose-built bulletproof Mercedes Benz, similar to the US President’s car, The Beast, during her Eras Tour in the UK.

The outlet noted that an ex-secret service agent manages her backstage movements with military precision. An insider told the outlet that her car is built for world leaders and can withstand “being shot at and explosives,” adding, “It has its own air supply, tyres that can’t be punctured, and separate compartments for the driver.”

The insider also mentioned that her arrivals and departures backstage are kept secret, and she has even reportedly had police escorts several times during her tour. 

“There is a fleet of Mercedes at her beck and call, ensuring she can travel in convoy. She has close protection bodyguards who ensure she is safe, and her comings and goings backstage are kept secret. Several times on the tour, she has had a police escort,” the source continued.
