The longest limousine is back: longest car in the world is now even longer

The world’s longest limousine is 30.5 meters long. The limousine was 30.5 meters long when it was listed in the Guinness Book of Records in 1990, but it has since fallen into disrepair. The automobile has now been totally repaired and is now longer than it has ever been.

The limousine was built in 1990 by famed car tuner Jay Ohrberg, according to the Motor1 website, and was based on a 1976 Cadillac Eldorado. The car was named “The American Dream” and was officially named the world’s longest car, Motor1 writes.

Diving board and helipad

The huge Cadillac limo has a movable center section, where a second driver had to sit, to be able to take corners. The front-wheel-drive car was also equipped with two engines. Among the many unique features of Ohrberg’s original design were a golf course, hot tub, pool with diving board and helipad.

Completely in disrepair

After the car was declared the longest car in the world, the model fell into disrepair. Autoseum, a technical leather museum in New York, was supposed to restore the car to its original glory, but it never happened. Last year the wreck came into the hands of Mike Dezer, owner of the Dezerland Park car museum in Florida, via an eBay advertisement. In August 2019, he started the restoration.

The car turned out to be badly neglected and extremely corroded, but now, three years and more than 250,000 dollars later, the car has been completely restored. To get the latest stories, install our app here.

“We had to buy some parts because they were destroyed,” Manning said. Several Cadillac Eldorado’s have been used as donors.

Grown four centimeters

During the restoration, the limousine was extended by four centimeters, bringing the total length to 30,538 meters. The car has once again broken the record for the longest car in the world.

The limousine will not often be seen driving but will mainly be part of the collection of unique and classic cars of Dezerland Park Auto Museum.
