A Smart Stretch So Stupid It Could Work?

Posted on September 11, 2015 by

Just when you think you’ve seen it all in the limo industry, a coachbuilder will take a vehicle that has no business being stretched and turn it into a luxury limousine. The latest example could be this new SmartCar stretch from German manufacturer Limouzine.de.

The company will be premiering the vehicle at the IAA Frankfurt Autoshow next week, and it’s already starting to create a buzz. It’s listed as having a new, third axle, and is lengthened from the standard 2.69 meters to now 5.5 meters.

The new axle makes it a six-wheeler, and inside the cabin has blue ambient lighting, leather seats, dual TVs, and champagne and glass holders. You can take a look at the video to see up-close what the new “Smart Stretch” looks like. LCT will be reporting on this more after its premiere at the show, with more details to follow on LCTMag.com.

What do you think? Smart enough to work?

Happy Friday everyone.
