My1sttoday — Meet the world’s longest car with a swimming pool, Golf course and helipad.
The world’s longest car has been restored to its full glory, and has now broken its own record. According to Guinness World Records, the super limo named “The American Dream” now measures 30.54 metres (100 feet and 1.50 inches).
The car was originally built in 1986 in California’s Burbank by car customiser Jay Ohrberg, according to Guinness World Records. At that time, it measured 60 feet, rolled on 26 wheels and had a pair of V8 engines at the front and rear.
After a few customisations, it was later extended to 30.5 metres. It is now slightly longer. Going by the Indian market, six Honda City sedans (15 feet each) can be parked along side “The American Dream” back-to-back and some space will still be left.
“The American Dream” is based on 1976 Cadillac Eldorado limousines and can be driven from both ends, Guinness World Records added. It has been built in two sections and joined in the middle by a hinge for turning tight corners.
But the car’s long size means it offers passengers a ride in the lap of luxury. There is a large waterbed, a swimming pool complete with a diving board, jacuzzi, bathtub, mini-golf course, and a breathtaking helipad.
“The helipad is structurally mounted to the vehicle with steel brackets underneath and can hold up to five thousand pounds,” Michael Manning, who was involved in The American Dream’s restoration, told Guinness World Record.
There are also refrigerators, a telephone and several television sets. The car can fit more than 75 people, according to Guinness World Records.
