Street Legal GP Limo Seats 7 And Will Supposedly Hit 300 MPH

By Andrew Liszewski

What you see here is probably the most awesomest way to arrive at a senior prom that you could possibly imagine. The GP Limo was designed and built by Michael Pettipas to seat 7 people (6 passengers and an experienced driver) and you might think that providing an authentic F1 experience to his riders would be enough, but apparently it’s not. You see Michael actually wants the GP Limo to beat the Bugatti Veyron’s 253 mph record for a street legal vehicle. (Yeah, believe it or not the GP Limo is actually street legal!)

At the moment the GPLimos.com website claims the car was actually shooting for a top speed of 300 mph during tests at the Bonneville Salt Flats, but that was over 3 years ago, and given the fact that the Veyron and the SSC Ultimate Aero TT still sit at the top of the record list, I assume things didn’t quite work out as Michael had hoped.

    Awesome gear, that's so cool it's good for racing. I'm sure racer will love it.

    Very interesting concept. I would have never thought about creating a F1 limo. They should be careful with the manufacturing agreement so nobody else steals the idea from them. This would be a great car for the F1 fans with deep pockets or just for a fun ride once in a while.
