Donald Trump was determined to show who's boss at his historic summit with Kim Jong Un.

The US president wasted no time in giving the North Korean dictator a sneak peek at 'the Beast'- his £1.5million (Sh203 million) flashy black Cadillac limousine, complete with American flags.

The pair, who share a 'special bond' according to Trump had just finished a 40-minute one-on-one meeting in Singapore discussing denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

After talks, a beef rib and crispy pork lunch and a stroll around the Capella Hotel grounds on Sentosa Island, Trump gestured Kim towards the vehicle.

Flashing a wry smile as a Secret Service agent opened the right passenger door, the dictator peeked inside while chatting with the US president.

To begin with, people were confused about what they were doing, but it quickly became clear Trump was displaying a classic alpha male move.

After a brief chat, he then taps Kim on the arm "as if to say good boy" and "I'm in charge", body language expert Darren Stanton told the Sun.

He added: "I believe he showed him the vehicle out of ego as if to say ‘your Maybach is great but look what I have!’"

The polished car costs £1.5million and weighs a hefty 4.5 tonnes.

It is sealed against chemical and biological attack, has an armoured plated undercarriage and even bulletproof windows.

The 'Beast' is clearly designed with safety in mind, and contains medical equipment such as a life support machine and bloody supply.

Trump wasn't the only one to turn up in a lavish car - Kim arrived to the meeting in a Mercedes Maybach, which under international sanctions, he shouldn't have access to.

The two leaders met for the first time to discuss ways to end a nuclear standoff on the Korean peninsula, with Kim promising "major change" is afoot.
