A limousine's sole purpose is extravagance and luxury. These vehicles do not exist for necessity, and as such have the right to be as ridiculous and lavish as we want them to be. While limousines of all shapes and sizes can be easily rented for special occasions and showing-off, the ones on this list somehow truly manage to up the ante.
Some are impenetrable, while others are downright silly. But, all the limousines on this list have one thing in common: an extravagant nature and a very hefty price tag. These are the ten most expensive and luxurious limousines in the world.
10 U.S. Presidential Cadillac Limousine
The very same car used to transport the president of the United States of America himself, and among all the presidential vehicles throughout the years, this one is the most luxurious and secure. It replaces the previous presidential vehicle often referred to as "The Beast."
However, this one is lighter and supposedly more advanced. Naturally, not much detail has been revealed about the President's Cadillac Limo, but we know it's a powerful, impenetrable fortress. We also know it features a 5.0 liter diesel engine, as well as tech like run-flat tires and weighs a total of 20,000 lbs. The price of one of these is estimated at $1,5 million.
9 The American Dream
Back in the late '80s, a renowned car collector named Jay Ohrberg created the longest and equally most ridiculous and impressive limousine ever - The American Dream. Spanning a length of just about 100 feet, this limousine packs every luxury feature imaginable, and a lot more.
The vehicle is actually a heavily modified version of a 1970 Cadillac Eldorado, equipped with no less than 26 wheels, an onboard swimming pool, and even a helicopter landing pad. The finished product was allegedly worth an incredible $4 million. Unfortunately, The American Dream has encountered some rough times and is currently rusting away somewhere in New Jersey, waiting to be restored.
8 Maybach 62s Landaulet
A concept limousine introduced by Maybach in 2009, the Landaulet takes many of its cues from the company's luxury cars sold in the 1920s. It's designed as a personal limousine only for the most ambitious and extravagant enthusiasts, with a glass-separated chauffeur area and a back that opens up to the sky.
Known for producing large and luxurious cars, Maybach really took it to the extreme with this limo. It features gold-speckled granite inlays inside the enormous rear cabin that's completely upholstered by leather and covered by a retractable roof. Under the hood is a 612-horsepower V12 engine, launching this 6300-lb car to 60 mph in just about 5 seconds. All for a hefty $1.35 million price tag.
7 The Midnight Rider
This vehicle completely rejects the concept of a traditional limousine and takes things to another level, literally. A record holder for both the largest and the heaviest limousine ever made (weighing in at just about 50,000 lbs), the Midnight rider spans 416 square feet and features multiple accommodation areas connected by stairs, including three lounge areas featuring individual bars.
Onboard this giant limo you will be served by a hostess and a designated bartender. This massive limousine is run by a 435-horsepower engine and costs an estimated total of $2,5 million.
6 Mercedes-Maybach S600 Pullman Guard
There's the regular Pullman and then there's this ridiculously expensive and bomb-proof Guard version designed only for the most prestigious individuals such as heads of states or high-ranking government officials. It was created to offer top-notch luxury and impressive performance while simultaneously being able to withstand a terrorist attack.
Hidden inside is a twin-turbo V12 churning out 523 horsepower and creating 737 lb-ft of twist, which is enough to make this massive 256" and 11,200-lb road yacht reach 60 mph in 6.5 seconds. This armored luxury limo is among most expensive official limos ever offered put on the market, and commands a steep price tag of €1.4 million, which translates to roughly $1.55 million.
5 The Batmobile Limousine
Fans of the Caped Crusader will be happy to hear that one of the most iconic and renowned Batmobiles to appear in film, one designed by Tim Burton for the 1989 Batman movie, has been made in shape of a luxury limousine. It came to be in 2012, by the hands of a Batman fan, of course, and is quite a solid recreation of the original.
It even features a V8 Jet engine from a Corvette, and many gadgets you'd find in the real Batmobile, such as a missile launcher, rear bat wings, ejectable wheels, and a rocket launcher. However, this one was designed for luxury, and instead of having just one seat like the original, it provides a comfortable and spacious cabin with a driver for that true limousine experience. It is also one of the most expensive limousines in the world, with the total cost for the project estimated at $4.2 million.
4 Rolls Royce Phantom Limousine
No luxury car list is complete without a Rolls. And luckily the renowned custom limousine shop LimousinesWorld now offers Rolls Royce's flagship model, the Phantom, extended by 30 inches and upgraded into one of the most supreme and luxurious limousines in the world. They call it the Rolls Royce Limousine Phantom - VIP Edition.
The limo builds on the Phantom's already impressive luxury experience. Apart from now being over 21 feet long, it also encompasses every luxury feature imaginable: from an upgraded suspension to on-board televisions, interior LED lighting, luxury glassware, hardwood inlays, and heaps more. It does not disappoint under the hood either, featuring a massive 6.8L, 563-horsepower V12 engine connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
3 Sultan of Brunei’s Rolls Royce
Well known for his lavish lifestyle, the Sultan of Brunei is also a passionate car collector. Among the 7000 vehicles in His Majesty's personal collection hides one of the most extravagant and expensive limousines in the world.
It's a modified version of the 1990 Rolls Royce Silver Spur II stretch limousine fully plated with 24-carat gold and decorated with gold accents. Even the rims are covered in pure gold, bumping the total cost of the car to over $14 million.
2 The Boeing 727 Limo
We would remiss if we hadn't included this incredibly expensive and at the same time ridiculous custom limousine in our list. Ridiculous as it may seem, the whole concept of this limousine is extremely well thought out, with a beautiful and luxurious interior and an extremely eye-catching exterior. It's fully street legal, by the way.
It weighs in at a whopping $24,000 lbs and features a well-equipped bar, a big-screen tv, comfortable seating, ceiling mirrors, and much more. Seating up to 50 people, this giant is offered to rent by Limo Bob for as much as $100,000 per month, and is worth an asking price of exactly 1 million dollars.
1 Mercedes G63 Armored Limousine
This heavy-duty armored G63 is delivered by a Canadian armored vehicle producer called INKAS. On top of the powerful original G63 wagon, the company added an all-round bulletproof plating (including bulletproof windows and tires) and a large, luxurious rear cabin with reclining leather seats with a view on the 4K resolution TV over a cooled bar.
It also packs an impressive 5.5L V8 that sends a stampede of 563 horsepower to the large wheels. With heaps of ground clearance, the G63 limousine will allow you to go anywhere unharmed, and in style.
