The longest car in the world has become even longer
The first version of the giant Cadillac Eldorado limousine, assembled by the creator of unique cars, American Jay Orbegon, was released in 1986. This automonster had 26 wheels, two V8 engines (front and rear), and it reached 18.5 meters in length.
But Orbegon decided not to stop there and made the car even bigger — the next version became 12 meters longer. This limo could fit 75 people. Passengers had a swimming pool, a jumping board, a bathtub, a Jacuzzi, and even platforms for a mini-golf and a helicopter.
However, automobile gigantism of this kind immediately came into conflict with reality, and after several trips around the city, the monster limousine was stuck in one of the warehouses in New Jersey for many years. As a result, three years ago, the car was bought by Michael Dezer, the owner of the Dezerland Park Automobile Museum in Orlando, Florida.
The long downtime did not pass without a trace. Like any motionless mechanism, the car began to rust and collapse. The restoration of the rarity cost the new owner a quarter of a million dollars. It was necessary to completely replace the cab, the entire transmission and “increase” the length by almost 4 cm, after which the revived Eldorado became a Guinness record holder among the longest cars in the world.Today, as before, 75 passengers, a swimming pool with a springboard and a helipad with a helicopter are placed on the “board” of a giant limousine. However, in order to land on it, you will need solid flight training.
However, Michael Dezer is not going to drive his limo on the roads of the USA. This unique car has a different destiny — to become one of the main attractions of Dezerland Park.
