If you have a ton of cash sitting around and you don’t know what to spend it on – I think we have found something you may enjoy!

Someone actually decided to convert a Learjet into a limousine, and now the crazy prototype is scheduled to hit the block at Mecum Auctions’ upcoming Indy 2020 sales event.

Oh, the Limo-Jet is street legal too!

The ride is a whopping 42-feet-long! Limo-Jet began its life as a regional aircraft manufactured by Learjet, according to Autoblog. But then, designer Dan Harris of Oregon got the strange, yet semi-genius idea to turn it into something a little more. So, after two years of research and development, and with 40,000 man-hours of work overseen by Chicago-based Exotic Coach, the Limo-Jet made its public debut.

The Limo-Jet is finished in a classy yet flashy candy red, while the Limo-Jet’s aluminum fuselage sits on a custom-made steel frame. Also brand new (and patent-pending) are the vehicle’s rear engine bay, drivetrain, suspension and computer systems.

The Learmousine rides along on a set of custom 28-inch red-and-black Diablo wheels with Kumho 325/25R28 tires. Meanwhile, the rear-wheel-drive behemoth gets its power from an 8.1-liter Chevrolet V8 engine, that produces 400 horsepower.

On the interior of the Limo-Jet, the driver sits in front of a four-spoke steering wheel, a Chevy Silverado instrument cluster, along with four screens that provide different views of what’s going on outside the vehicle. The rest of the interior looks just like your basic Vegas nightclub, with a slew of neon lights, an infinity floor, a flat-screen TV, a 17,000-watt sound system and 18 seats for you and, well, plenty of other people.

Mecum has not said how much they expect to pull in from the sale of Limo-Jet, but I think it’s safe to say that it should take in a pretty penny – or two!
