A company called Carbonyte in the U.K. created this tubular limousine from a Smart. Judging by the livery, a certain energy beverage probably played a role in inspiration of it (or at least in the long hours required to build it).


You can make your own limousine at home. All you need is a Volkswagen beetle, a Cabrio, and a welder. Now, is it on a flatbed to keep it in show condition, because it doesn't run, or because nobody wanted to drive it?


From Insane Limos comes this beast. This Ford F-650 is called Andre the Limo.


Perhaps the least outrageous on the list, but still notable, this Volkswagen Phaeton limo was made in-house. Called the Phaeton Lounge, it was the world's first four-wheel-drive limousine. It was 22 feet long, and powered by a 420-horsepower W-12 engine.


The whole idea of stretching a Mini Cooper is oxymoronic, which turned us off at first. Until we got a glimpse of that pool sitting above the two rear axles. We have to admit, it looks fun, and we'd jump at a chance to go for a ride.


At first, we were horrified by the thought of a stretch Chrysler PT Cruiser. But then we thought, "Well, at least it's not a Sebring."


Ever wondered how to make your Toyota Prius even slower? Here's your answer. Turn it into a limousine.


As if another Hummer limousine wasn't bad enough, this one is painted in tiger stripes. A1 Limousine of South Florida is the proud owner of this one. They also rent a zebra-print Hummer limo, if you're into that sort of thing.


This 1965 Rolls-Royce limousine belonged to John Lennon, in case you couldn't tell from the psychedelic paint job.


This 100-foot-long limousine holds the Guinness world record for being the longest car. It has 26 wheels, and is drivable. This one also has a swimming pool, as well as a king size bed. It was designed by Jay Ohrberg of Burbank, California.

A You From Perhaps The At Ever As This This

They may be hard to drive, and they're expensive, and they're often really ugly. Still, there's something about really long cars that has always fascinated us. Sometimes, it's the "who's in there?" factor that piques our interest. These ten limos, however, don't have to be shuttling Burt Reynolds around to be cool.

Some good, some terrible, all of these limousines have something special about them beyond mere length.
