HIGH FLYERS Former private Learjet converted into £3.8million limo is the ultimate ‘club on wheels’

Share

Former jet plane has had its wings clipped and been transformed into a one-of-a-kind limo.

Costing more than £760,000 (US$1million) to construct, the ‘Limo-Jet’ took over 12 years to complete before being first revealed last year.

The unique vehicle, which can transport up to eight passengers, uses four 28-inch wheels attached to a wingless Learjet fuselage.

The 28-metre (42ft)-long limo is the brainchild of designer Dan Harris and co-owners Frank DeAngelo and Dima Kashevatsky.

Completely street-legal, it’s been designed as the ultimate party vehicle – described as a “club on wheels” – and comes with both exterior and interior sound systems.

While the wings had to be removed for the vehicle to be deemed roadworthy in the US, the jet engine casings remain, and house two 12-inch subwoofers surrounded by neon lights.

Alongside the “engine speakers”, a motorised cover reveals a row of subwoofers and speakers along the edge of the limo, all of which make up the exterior sound system.

A set of fold-down stairs lead inside, where neon lights fill the interior, along with a large TV screen, more speakers, and a tonne of amplifiers.

Up front, there’s a single seat for the driver, or ‘pilot’, with a bank of four monitors on the custom dash.

These screens are hooked up to external cameras to allow the driver to see around the giant car during its various voyages.

 

Above the driver’s seat in the ceiling of the limo is a bank of toggle switches which activate the car’s custom disco lighting, as well as the lights in the special “Infinity Mirror” floor.

Parts from a number of vehicles were incorporated into the finished product, including lights from a Jeep and suspension parts from a pick-up truck.

Powered by a Vortec V8 engine, with a top speed of just over 100mph, the finished Limo-Jet weighs an impressive 12,000 pounds and has a tail fin that sits almost 12 feet in the air.

Currently touring the US as a promotional vehicle, anyone can book the limo for private events if they’re looking to make an impression.

But anyone wanting to buy the Limo-Jet would have to be prepared to pay around £3.8million (US$5million).

The vehicle is now entirely road legal

Frank DeAngelo told Barcroft Media: “We’ve had people pull over on the side of the road, and they’ll get out of the car and video tape the limo.

“They treat it almost like it’s a celebrity. It’s really accomplishing what we set out to do with it.

“I like to guess something over 40,000 man hours have been invested in the limo jet.

 

“People can’t believe how massive it is when it’s coming down the street.”
