Million Dollar Monday
Years ago, it was usually the millionaires, executives, and celebrities that were chauffeured around in fancy limousines, too busy to drive a car for themselves. Today, there are a plethora of different styled limousines that can be rented for a night out on the town, prom, a wedding, or a trip to the airport. It doesn’t matter how many zero’s are added at the end of your salary because limos are an affordable option to rent. Of course, just because you can rent them doesn’t mean that they aren’t expensive! Limousine companies pay a hefty price for some of these luxury vehicles, and they come in a variety of styles, and colors with features you may not even have in your home.Sometimes these limos have features or amenities that really aren’t practical (like a hot tub), yet those features suck people in to choose it over the simple no “bling” classic stretched town car. Limousines have evolved from an extension of a large sedan to the gigantic ultra luxury, ultra stretched exotic limos we see today.
Stretched Hummer limos come in all colors and models from the H2 to the H3 (also known as the baby Hummer). They also come with some pretty sweet features, some capable of holding 25 passengers. Wow! This is what your limo would include:
- Lighted dance floor
- Chrome Rims
- Full chrome mirrored ceiling
- 2 Plasma TVs
- Laser light show
- 20 speakers with subwoofers
- 8 bar areas
- Lightening disks in the bars
- Fiber Optics
And of course, if a Hummer isn’t big enough, you could always opt for the Party Bus capable of carrying 40+ passengers! Party busses have the typical seating arrangement that you’d find in a limo with bench couches down the sides and an open center section. They usually have all of the electronic gadgets that you’d want including TV’s, and Xbox or Playstation gaming systems.
— Pink Limousines–
So if the ordinary black or white limo isn’t doin’ it for ya, try pink! One company I found out of the UK has a whole line of pink limos. They offer a Hummer model, a Pink Jeep Limo, and a Pink Chrysler Hire. They’re typically rented by women, and according to the website are a pretty popular pick.
–Guinness World Records Highest Limousine–
On November 13, 1998, the Guinness Book of World Records deemed a limo made by Gary Duval as the Highest Limousine. From the ground to the roof it measures 10 feet 11 inches. It has an 8 wheel independent suspension system and utilizes eight monster truck tires. It also requires two separate engines! Looking at it makes me wonder how on earth someone gets inside! It took over 4,000 hours to complete this monster limo! I wonder if we’ll be seeing it at the monster truck races anytime soon?
— Guinness Book of World Records Longest Limousine–
Next, for the records is the Guinness World Records longest car every built! It measures 100 feet long and has 26 wheels!
- Swimming pool
- Diving board
- King-sized waterbed
Now, you’re probably asking yourself how this thing is able to drive on any normal road? Well, it doesn’t hit the streets very often because it’s typically used in films and exhibitions. If by chance it does need to take a real road trip, it can be made to bend in the middle. I don’t think I’d want to be the driver on this one!
There ya have it, a collection of some of the most expensive limousines in all styles and colors. They’ve certainly evolved from the plain town cars of the past, and it doesn’t require a six-figure income!
