The American Dream, World’s Longest Car at Almost 100 Feet

The American Dream

The super limo reached a length of 30.54m (100 ft. and 1.50 in) on March 1, 2022. It surpassed the 1986 record by just a few inches and entered the Guinness World Records.

Histories

Guinness World Records says that the American Dream was first constructed by Jay Ohrberg, a renowned automotive tailor, in 1986 in Burbank. The American Dream’s original length was 18.28m (60 feet), and it was rolled on 26 wheels. Two V8 engines powered it at the front and back.

Did you say LARGE?

After a few customizations, Ohrberg increased the length of the limousine to 30.5m (100ft) later.

The average automobile measures between 12 and 16 feet (3.6 to 4.2 meters) in length. This vehicle is comparable to six Honda City cars (even after all the space has been saved).

You could park 12 Smart Fortwo cars in one file line and still enjoy The American Dream for longer than any.

Enjoy the most luxurious ride of your life.

Based on 1976 Cadillac Eldorado limousines, it can be driven from one end and acts as a rigid vehicle.

The car was made in two pieces and connected at the center by a hinge to allow tight cornering.

This automobile is huge and luxurious, so passengers who travel in it are in the lap of luxury.

Are you serious? Are you serious?

The American Dream includes material luxuries that fit a King, such as a king-sized bed, a swimming pool with a diving board, a jacuzzi and bathtub, and a mini-golf course. There is also a helipad that can hold more than 75 people.

“The helipad can support up to 5,000 lbs and is attached to the vehicle using steel brackets underneath.”

Michael Manning, who helped with the restoration and maintenance of The American Dream, said that it was equipped with several televisions, refrigerators, and a telephone.

A downfall and golden years

It was used in several films and was rented out throughout its golden years. People lost interest in the automobile due to its high cost of upkeep and parking before allowing it to rust.

Its ‘Feat’ is back (pun intended).

After purchasing the item on eBay, The Manning began to repair it.

Guinness World Records estimates that the repair cost $250,000 for shipping, materials and labor and took three years.

Michael Dezer, the owner of Dezerland Park Car Museum & Tourist Attractions in Orlando, Florida, bought the car in 2019 after selling it on eBay.
