The interior of the limousine had a swimming pool inside and even a bed. Later, the owner of the vehicle decided to construct a helicopter landing pad for it.
The world’s longest car is often called the “American Dream” has two driver’s cabins – one in the front and one at the back of the car. These two cabins are connected for the drivers to be able to warn each other about a turn or any other change of plans. This vehicle was once so popular, that the limousine was sold at a high price as a promotion vehicle. However, after the end of the contract, the car was left at one of the abandoned warehouses.
Now, the car is covered with rust and can hardly be recognized since it is no longer in use. Since its inception, pictures of the longest car of the world has been used on various magazines and by different companies worldwide until the year 2012.
