This Learjet Converted Into A Street Legal Limousine Is Going Up For Auction

What you’re looking at is known as a Learmousine – a mix of Learjet and Limousine. If you have deep enough pockets, you might be able to own this ground-going Learjet.

It measures in at 42 feet in length and is 8 feet across. The Learmousine can accommodate 18 passengers and a driver. It features an 8.1L Chevrolet Vortec V-8, 400HP truck engine, and also has 28-inch red and black Diablo wheels that have been clad in Kumho 325/25R28 tires.

The Learmousine was designed by Dan Harris of Bend, Oregon back in 2005. It actually did start out as an aluminum Learjet fuselage that underwent conversion by Exotic Coach – a firm based in Chicago. It was created for the show circuit and is owned by Jettersetter Inc. in Chicago. It is about to become a part of an auction that is slated for June.

This street-legal jet/car (whichever word you prefer) comes with a steel skeleton frame, a Dark Candy Red paint job, a custom steering system, and hydro-boosted brakes. It took two years to develop its rear engine bay, suspension, drivetrain, electrical, and computer systems. It still has the tail intact and it can be folded to allow it to move in tight spaces. It also features the jet engine nacelles on either side that can be used for playing sound effects.

The main cabin is comprised of diamond-stitched leather seats, a refreshment center, a Showtime Audio 17,000-watt audio/visual system that comes with a 42-inch plasma TV, multiple light panels, and a plethora of speakers. The driver’s seat has a harness, red carbon-fiber-look trip, and four screens for the outboard cameras. If you buy it, Iron Bull trailer (44-ft) and a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 pickup will be part of the package. The auction begins on 23rd June and will be conducted by Mecum Auctions.
