Everyone wants to have a ride in a limousine at least once in their life – and more frequently where possible. Proms, weddings or a great birthday trip with a group of friends, over $4 billion is spent in America each year on chauffeured cars. With this amount of money being used for special occasions, there’s more and more call to be able to hire a limousine which will stand out in a crowd. For those who particularly want to impress, a custom limo which will make heads turn is top of the ‘must have’ feature when a booking is made.
Where custom limos started
It’s only a few years ago since Arnold Schwartzenegger started the craze for modification of standard cars. He made the jaws of Hollywood drop with his customized Hummer limousine and it was only a few months later that car designers took the Humvee 2 military vehicle and unleashed their creativity. The reason the Hummer is a great choice is because of the frame strength and the huge engines; they became instantly suited to being turned into a vehicle which could seat a dozen people in comfort as well as having a real ‘presence’.
The growth in use as a limousine as a party vehicle
Because of the association with Hollywood, stepping out for the evening in a limousine was a symbol of status. Bachelor party novelty use developed into the hiring of standard stretch limousines for just about every celebratory occasion possible. What was once unusual though quickly became the norm and the introduction of the Hummer Limo became the way forward for bigger and more unusual options.
Limousines are available now in a fantastic range of lengths and designs and many have been created from vehicles which originally weren’t designed to be stretched. The Ford 650 and GMC5500 are two models which are heavy duty and are now being lined up as offerings to those who want to hire limousines with a striking profile and the ability to seat a good many friends. Unmistakably powerful and a symbol of the wild outdoors, opting for either of these will amaze those who see groups stepping out of what originally was a tractor trailer truck.
For those who want to travel together in a sports car-conversion, there’s now the stretch Ferrari or Corvette and even, rather incredibly, a modified Lamborghini.
If it’s about reaching the ultimate in road speeds, car designer Jay Ohrberg is the person to look to. He has created a Jet Limo which isn’t dissimilar to the Batmobile in that it has an engine from a plane incorporated into the design; a sure guarantee that those on board will never be late to their prom or wedding.
Party-goers may feel that they have to wait until they’ve reached their destination before their night really begins, but with the Hummer Transformer party bus rental in NJ here, everyone can put their party hats on the minute they step on board. A vehicle like no other, it’s a disco on wheels with state of the art technology to match. A light show, digital sound system, stocked bar and fiber optics running all around the seating area, it shows the direction customized limousines are heading; and that direction is definitely fun. Whichever limousine is chosen, it’s now easier than at any time in the past to stand out from all those on the red carpet, so think customized and get ready to have the time of your life.
