Originally designed by Dan Harris of Bend, Oregon, and taking more than 40,000 man-hours to complete, the Limo-Jet started life as a bona fide king of the skies. A Learjet fuselage was mated to a custom steel skeletal frame that took two years of research, design, and development to construct, including its patent-pending rear engine bay, drivetrain, suspension, and computer systems. For tight spaces, the tips of the tailplane on the vertical fin fold inward. With the jet engine nacelles holding mammoth speakers (which can play jet engine sound effects), an 8.1L Chevrolet Vortec V-8, 400 HP truck engine sits deep in the chassis to power the Limo-Jet down the road, riding on custom 28-inch red and black Diablo wheels with Kumho 325/25 R28 tires. Hydro-boosted brakes keep speeds in check. Inside, the driver’s cockpit includes a deep bucket seat with a harness, red carbon-fiber-look trim and four screens for the outboard cameras. Overhead toggles power myriad internal and external effects and controls, including the Showtime Audio 17,000-watt audio/visual system that features a 42-inch plasma TV, multiple light panels and a plethora of speakers inside and out. There’s seating for up to 18 jetsetters in the diamond-stitched leather seats, with the interior further featuring an infinity floor, a refreshment center and plenty of cup holders.
