Needless to say, this 42 foot long, 8 foot wide Learjet Limo is a one of a kind. And no, the jet engines are no longer functional. They’ve been replaced with humongous speakers that play jet engine sound effects!
Originally designed by Dan Harris of Bend, Oregon, and taking more than 40,000 man-hours to complete, the Limo-Jet started life as a bona fide king of the skies.
A Learjet fuselage was mated to a custom steel skeletal frame that took two years of research, design and development to construct, including its patent-pending rear engine bay, drivetrain, suspension and computer systems. For tight spaces, the tips of the tail plane on the vertical fin fold inward. With the jet engine nacelles holding mammoth speakers (which can play jet engine sound effects), an 8.1L Chevrolet Vortec V-8, 400 HP truck engine sits deep in the chassis to power the Limo-Jet down the road, riding on custom 28-inch red and black Diablo wheels with Kumho 325/25R28 tires. Hydro-boosted brakes keep speeds in check.
Inside, the driver’s cockpit includes a deep bucket seat with harness, red carbon-fiber-look trim and four screens for the outboard cameras. Overhead toggles power myriad internal and external effects and controls, including the Showtime Audio 17,000-watt audio/visual system that features a 42-inch plasma TV, multiple light panels and a plethora of speakers inside and out.

It also has diamond-stitched leather seats with room for 18 “jetsetters,” an infinity floor, a refreshment center and, you guessed it, plenty of cup holders.
Oh, and if you need a way to haul it around, the auction also comes with a custom 2017 Iron Bull 44-foot trailer and a 2015 Chevrolet 2500 HD pickup truck.
It’s anyone’s guess what this bad boy will go for at auction, but you’ll be glad to know that financing is available.
