The Top Ten Weirdest Limousines From Here and Abroad
We often blog about weird limousines, hybrid limos and all sorts of luxury limo oddities from around the world for our readers. As we often say, we are unapologetic car geeks, and strange limousine modifications, no matter how impractical, appeal to our insatiable hunger for the weird and wonderful of the luxury (and sometimes, not so luxurious) automotive world. To that end, we’ve compiled a list of the top ten weirdest limousines from around the world.
- Ferrari 360 Modena limousine
This matte black carbon fiber stretch limo debuted at the European Limousine and Chauffeur show in England in 2007. It is reportedly the fastest limo in the world and is 23 feet long, boasts 400hp under the hood and achieves 0-60mph in less than six seconds, with a top speed of 170mph.
- Mini Cooper limousine
Actually, our researchers found several custom Mini Cooper limos out there, but they selected the hot pink Mini Cooper S model (complete with hot tub!) as the one most worthy of mentioning on this list.
- Chevrolet Corvette limousine
This is another case where there are several Corvette limo oddities competing. Our panel of experts chose a 2004 Chevy Corvette C6 model, complete with gullwing doors, dance floor and electric fireplace as the clear winner in the Corvette limo category, as no Corvette limousine would be truly complete without a fireplace.
- Lamborghini Aventador limousine
This limo oddity has not yet been made, but a British custom vehicle manufacturer is planning to craft one in the near future. This beauty would sport four scissor doors, a complete wet bar, very sexy styling and a stock 6.5-liter 692hp V12 engine. Vroom.
- Chrysler PT Cruiser limousine
This odd limousine is owned by a limo service on the east coast and is available for guests who really want to get noticed. It is hot pink (naturally), features a complete wet bar and includes an infotainment panel.
- Cadillac Escalade double-front-end limousine
This limo is made from the front ends of two identical Cadillac Escalades that have been joined together. We were unable to determine which end is for the chauffeur and which is for the guests, but perhaps that is part of the appeal?
- Volkswagen Beetle limousine
As long as there have been Volkswagen Beetles and crafty custom limo manufacturers, there have been VW Beetle Limousines. We suspect that these niche limousines are designed more for marketing the limo services that own them, rather than for guest comfort.
- Porsche Cayenne limousine
This stylish Porsche Cayenne Turbo S actually looks pretty good on the outside as well as the inside. It is owned by a limo service in China and is very popular with wedding limousine guests.
- Cadillac Fleetwood monster truck limousine
This 1975 Cadillac Fleetwood limo takes the traditional stretch limo idea but stretches the height as well. The manufacturer took the shell of a classic Fleetwood and mounted it high on a huge truck chassis to accommodate the 40-inch wheels. The view would be cool from the passenger cabin, but where do you stash the ladder?
- The Finnjet
We blogged about the Finnjet a while back, and it occupies a special spot in our hearts. It weighs 7,500 pounds, is 29 feet long, took ten years to build and sports around 86 lights, 36 mirrors and two jet engine housings. What’s not to like?
