The 15-country, five-month tour is schedule to depart on April 1 and finish in August. The  route includes  the Eastern portion of the U.S., then  crossing over the border via Texas into Mexico and then through Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama (where it will be transported by boat to Venezuela) and then on to its final destination in Brazil. Following the World Cup, the limo will continue through South America to Uruguay, Argentina and Chile before heading north passing through Peru and completing the adventure in the geographic midpoint of the world — Ecuador.
