Miami’s Dezer family is famous for their obsession with cars. Developers Michael and Gil Dezer built the Porsche Design Tower in Sunny Isles Beach, a cylindrical black monolith with a trio of car elevators that bring your prized ride straight up to your very, very expensive condo in the sky, and they’re currently working on the Bentley Residences Miami, which is basically the same thing but, you guessed it, branded by another luxury car company.
The family also owns the Dezerland Park and car museum, a sort of indoor theme park attraction with locations in Miami and Orlando, where you soon may be able to see the world’s longest car, an absolute leviathan of a limousine at 110 feet and 1.5 inches in length. Known as the “American Dream,” the car was restored by the Dezers and a man named Michael Manning, who owns a technical school on Long Island.
The restoration cost a cool $250,000 and included the original limo and three doner Cadillacs, for parts. Originally, it was six El Dorados put together, connected with a custom fabricated frame, and the roof from an Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser. Although it’s pretty empty inside, it’s decked out in leather, vinyl, carpeting, and LED lights, and can apparently hold 75 people. There’s also a putting green, hot tub, and helipad hanging on to the back. In a video posted by the Guinness Book of World Records, you can even see a helicopter landing on the aforementioned helipad.
Although it can be driven, that’s obviously a challenge Manning says. The biggest issues are finding enough straight roadway and the incredibly wide turning radius.
The car was originally built by car customizer Jay Ohrberg in 1986, according to Guinness, and started at 60 feet in length. Unsatisfied, Ohrberg just kept lengthening it over the years, and in the latest renovation, the car was extended even further, by 1.5 inches, beating its old world record. And according to Manning, this isn’t the end, per see. “Eventually, we’re going to extend it. I don’t know how long we’re going to make it, but I guess as long as we can, Manning said. “Sky’s the limit. Well, the road’s the limit.”
