A show-stopping Learjet limo has been unveiled, featuring a fully-custom design that has transformed a former plane into a nightclub on wheels. The one-of-a-kind vehicle, which cost more than $1 million (£760,000) to construct and can transport up to eight passengers, uses four 28-inch wheels attached to a wingless Learjet fuselage. It is now available to anybody prepared to pay $5 million for the contraption. Before it was debuted in 2018, the 28-metre (42ft)-long Limo-Jet was in the making for 12 years. more videos
