Loony Limo: A Classic Guzzler

RETRO-CHIC CHEAP
: For $25,000, you can get a 1981 Ferrari 400 limousine. It's definitely more unique than most other classic limousines. This elegant slice of Italian ingenuity will bring back an era when inflation was high, the 55 mph speed limit was too low, and the socially-conscious among us worried about global cooling and running out of heating oil.

And, yes, the V-12 likely gulps enough gas to get the same MPG as a Boeing 777, but then gas prices in 1981 were either at or slightly ahead of what they are now when adjusted for inflation. Yet everyone kept on driving and surviving.

There likely would be enough retro-hipsters in tuxes who would pay a fuel surcharge on this limo rental in order to experience an evening of James Bondian transportation. So this is an opportunity for an operator to stand out and be cool.
