Decades ago, seeing a Ferrari on the street was as common as spotting a Blue-Footed Booby in Golden Gate Park. That's hardly the case anymore, in this Age of Wretched Excess. But it's still possible to make a statement with the storied automobile--namely, in the form of a stretch limo.
The vehicle pictured here is no prom-night special--it's the world's first gullwing Ferrari limo," according to organizers of the annual European Limousine and Chauffeur Show in England this month. Gizmag says the black Ferrari 360 Modena is also the fastest limo in the world, which we don't doubt for a nano-second: Despite having a 23-foot-long body, it goes from zero to 60 in less than 6 seconds and tops out at 170 mph.
The custom-built stretch Ferrari, commissioned by Style Limousines of Manchester for nearly $400,000 in modifications, skips the usual mini-bars in favor of 9-foot gullwing doors. Because what good is a Ferrari limo without a grand exit?
