Limousines are luxury vehicles with a lengthened wheelbase that allows more people than usual to use the vehicle. Also called stretch limos, they also often incorporate a range of features from fridges to television screens. Generally limos are owned either by very wealthy celebrities, governments (to transport country’s leaders and important visitors), and hire companies that rent them out for special occasions. Here are 11 of the biggest limos ever produced.
#11 KAZ Limo
Essentially a refinement of an earlier Eliica (Electric Lithium-Ion Car) designed by a team at Keio University in Tokyo, this Keio Advanced Zero-emission (KAZ) vehicle, could be the limo of the future. It runs on a battery rather than using fossil fuels to operate, and the prototype (which isn’t a limo) can accelerate to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just a few seconds, and can reach a top speed of 193.3 km/h. The limo version is 22-foot-long (6.7 m) and has eight wheels. It is also intended for just eight people. This limo took five years to build and it cost a whopping US$4 million.
#10 Corvette Stretch Limo
Not very common, the longest known Corvette limos are about 23 feet (seven meters) long. Big Limos built one that was about this size, and it took eight months to complete. It has many of the “regular” features of other limos, including a disco floor and bar, fireplace, all the good stuff to play brilliant music, and four flat-screen television sets. But there probably aren’t that many extras because it holds ten passengers, which is a lot more than some much bigger limos are designed to accommodate.
