Private Jet Transformed into a Seriously Cool Limo-Jet Is Going on Sale
The half-jet, half-limo creation was put together by Dan Harris from Bend, Oregon, and is going up for auction in June through Mecum Auctions.
If you wish to stand out from the crowd, get ready for the auction, as you could be the owner of a crimson red party Limo-Jet.
A party Limo-Jet
It took Dan Harris over 40,000 hours to convert the jet into a rolling, and usable, limousine. The body of the 'car' is aluminum, fitted with the typical small jet windows, the wings have been removed for ease of use, naturally, and the rear wing has been repurposed onto a steel chassis.
The Limo-Jet is 42-feet long, eight-feet wide, and weighs nearly 5.5 tonnes.
The jet part of the limo can no longer fly, but it moves along swiftly and smoothly on the roads with its four 28-inch wheels.
Moreover, it's been fitted out with an original 8.1-liter Chevrolet V8 engine, which provides more than 400 horsepower — most likely enough to keep the impressive creation moving. The Limo-Jet won't be rolling around unnoticed, though. Aside from its rather obvious bright red paint job, and clear differentiation from other vehicles on the roads, it also has external speakers built into the turbines, and the tail, which can play jet engine sound effects – just in case no one had noticed it rolling by.
It's not just its exterior that stands out. The Limo-Jet was clearly built for celebrations, as the interior offers nightclub vibes. Screens adorn the sidewalls and ceiling, neon-lit colorful floors and side panels are enough to blind you, and a powerful 17,000-watt sound system won't quite make your ears bleed but will certainly have you headbanging to your favorite tune.
The Limo-Jet is meant to seat 17 to 18 people, however, it looks like that may be a bit of a squeeze from the photos.
In typical limo fashion, the driver's section, or cockpit, is separate. That area comes equipped with airplane roof controls, a special mic to talk to the passengers, and four screens that show the cameras' views for ease of parking and control.
And let's not forget the very funky jet door that's been kept as part of the limo.
The Limo-Jet will go on auction between June 23-28 at the Mecum Indy 2020 event this year. When purchasing it, the new owner will also have a Chevrolet Silverado 2500 pickup truck included in the price, which comes equipped with a trailer to transport the Limo-Jet. Not to worry, though, the limo has all the right documents and paperwork necessary to travel on the roads itself.
