L.A. Limo Operator Boasts "World’s Biggest Limousine"

Posted on October 20, 2010 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

Converted from a truck, the 40 foot-long Colossus can seat 30 passengers, and features a VIP room, disc jockey station, and a full karaoke system.

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Karen Petrosyn, owner of Los Angeles area transportation provider, THE BIGGEST LIMO, has introduced the Colossus, the “world’s biggest and most luxurious limousine” as he describes it.

Started in 2008, The Biggest Limo offers a fleet of luxury limousine brands, including Bentleys, Rolls Royces, Mercedes, BMWs and Prowlers. However, Petrosyn said he set out to create a more unique vehicle.

“I wanted to make something extraordinary that no one else would have. I decided to convert a truck into a limo,” Petrosyn explained. The 40 foot-long vehicle was converted from a Moonlight Diesel dump truck, a process which took slightly more than one year.

The 30-passenger limousine also features 11 Plasma TVs; an 8,000-watt Dolby surround sound stereo system; and a Pioneer Disc Jockey station with a complete mixing system.

In the back of the vehicle there’s a VIP room with a Playstation 3 and Wii System; a full karaoke system; club-style lighting, including laser shows and a low-lying fog machine; disco LCD floor; a 52-inch rear outward-facing plasma TV, available for commercial and branding purposes; two entertainment poles; a “surveillance room” with four interior and exterior cameras; and a satellite system able to pick up reception from all over the world.

In business as of August, the Colossus can be rented for $300 an hour.
