Nick Mead always wanted a tank and a stretch limousine, so what better way to combine the two than by creating the “Tank Limo”? It’s unofficially the world’s first and only road legal stretched tank that you can actually hire. One caveat: it’s only allowed to hit 20 miles per hour with rubber-padded tracks, but on private roads, the tank can hit 35 MPH without any problems. This may not sound fast, but you have to remember that it’s a 22-foot long and 8-foot wide monster weighing in at 38,580 pounds. Read more for a video and additional information.
Despite its size, Mead claims the Tank Limo is quite easy to maneuver since it turns in the middle, which makes the machine more flexible than a stretched Hummer SUV. There has only been one mishap so far, and that was when they clipped a side mirror of a van in London. How much does it cost to hire this tank? A reasonable £1,600 or around $2,000 at today’s current exchange rates.
