The first thing that comes to the mind when you think about limos is drunken shenanigans in Las Vegas or New York, screams, shouts and lacy underwear flying in the air, but there is so much more to limos than just debauchery! The long wheel base vehicle has been the epitome of luxurious travel for years now and we sat down and made a list of 12 limos that cost over a million dollars. Guess what, Trump’s limo is on the list too!
1. Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf
values: $1 million
The Lagonda is a super-sport sedan that looks nothing like a stretch vehicle, but more like a long-ish sedan, at best. Based on the legendary Lagonda Rapide, the Taraf carries a 5.9 liter V12 engine that churns out 540hp and can attain a top speed of 314kmph. A total of 200 units of the Taraf were produced and sold to Middle Eastern buyers.
2. Mercedes-Benz S600 Pullman Guard

The S600 Pullman Guard is no ordinary limo– it is Mercedes-Maybach’s 21 foot long flagship armored model that can deflect bullets and even withstand small level explosions, under protection certifications class VR9 and Directive ERV 2010. The vehicle functions on a 6 liter twin -turbo V12 engine with 540hp and a top speed of 250kmph, which has been limited to 99kmph.
3. ZiL 4112R
What was conceived and designed as the prototype presidential limousine for Russian prez Vladimir Putin, was canceled last minute because he decided he wanted a Nami that could cost him $170 million instead. The ZiL is a Russian make that is as luxurious inside out as it is powerful. Under its hood was a 7.7 liter V8 engine with 400hp power and a top speed of 201kmph. Have a look:
4. Royal Million Euro Mini
values: $1.35 million
This one’s for the ladies, because it’s pink. A pink stretch mini, with a pink panther wrap, that is the royal chariot for the princess of Kazakhstan. And that’s not all, the bodywork on the vehicle is studded with one million Swarovski crystals, while the window films got a generous pure gold plating treatment.
5. Maybach 62 Landaulet
values: $1.4 million
The most luxurious limo of its time, the Maybach 62 Landaulet was an object of fascination for several Middle-Easterners who had the kind of disposal income to splurge in the moving lap of luxury. The most awesome feature of the Landaulet was its fully retractable top, a first in a limo.
6. Cadillac One: The Beast
values: $1.5 million
With the kind of attention he’s been getting from North Korea of late, President Trump needs a car that can save him from land or airborne attacks, which is why he owns the brand new Cadillac One. The vehicle can withstand the impact of a rocket hit and even survive a chemical attack, aside from being bulletproof, of course.
7. The Midnight Rider
values: $2.5 million
A trailer, for god’s sake, the Midnight Rider is nothing short of a shining black beast. What’s inside is beyond awesome– an entire nightclub for 40, replete with a bar!
8. Rolls Royce Phantom Limo
values: $3.8 million
Luxury is a given the minute you read the words “Rolls Royce” and this Phantom limo is an armored version of that obvious luxury. Apparently the cabin has an entire office space built in!
9. The American Dream
values: $4 million
Appropriately named, the longest car in the world, the 100 foot Cadillac Eldorado is truly a wonder! The vehicle has its only heli-pad and a jacuzzi because after you land from a long trip in the chopper you want to go in for a relaxing bath, right?
10. Batmobile Sedan
values: $4.2 million
It won’t surprise you if Bruce Wayne pulled up in a limo, right? But, what if Batman slides out of a Batmobile limo? While we’ll never know the answer to that question, we do know there’s this Batmobile limo out there for real and it’s quite a machine, complete with batwings!
11. Custom Gold Plated Rolls Royce Silver Spur Limo
values: $14 million
As if gold plated window films in the Princess’s Mini weren’t enough, the Sultan of Brunei celebrated his wedding day traveling in a 24k gold plated Rolls Royce Silver Spur Limo. Special emphasis was laid on the wheel caps that were also crafted with gold.
