Nothing says "you've made it" quite like pulling up in your own private jet. But a close second could be this private jet that's been converted into a 42-foot-long road-going limousine. Appropriately named the Limo-Jet, this one-off custom creation features a 17,000-watt audio system, an infinity mirror floor, and seating for 18—and it's coming up for auction at Mecum's Indianapolis sale.

The Limo-Jet began making headlines in 2018, when it was finally completed after a 12-year build process. Though some limos are hastily slapped together Frankenstein jobs, the photos reveal a great deal of thought and craftsmanship went into the making of the Limo-Jet. A steel tube frame chassis supports the aluminum fuselage of a real Learjet aircraft, and rides on a sophisticated pushrod suspension. The whole thing is powered by a rear-mounted 8.1-liter Chevrolet Vortec V-8.

To match the scale of the massive vehicle, a set of custom six-spoke 28-inch Diablo wheels was chosen, painted black with Dark Candy Red accents to match the exterior color. The nacelles that would normally hold the Learjet's two turbofan engines instead house a pair of gigantic speakers, which can blast jet engine sound effects while cruising down the boulevard. At the tail section there are more speakers that flip down and retract flush with the body.

Inside you'll find all the amenities you expect from a limousine, including luxurious diamond-stitched leather bench seats, multi-color ambient lighting, a 42-inch plasma TV, and a "refreshment center." Up front in the cockpit is a single bucket seat for the driver/pilot, along with plenty of candy red toggle switches and four camera screens. According to the listing, the Limo-Jet is street legal. Whether it's practical to drive on the street given its immense 42-foot length, 8-foot width, and 11.6-foot height is another matter. But it does come with its own trailer and Chevy Silverado 2500HD pickup so you can tow it to events.

Considering the years of R&D and reported 40,000 man hours put into it, why is the Limo-Jet now for sale just two years after completion? We've reached out to the owners, Jetsetter Inc., to find out and will update this post when we hear back. But whatever the reason, here's your chance to buy a one-of-a-kind jet-shaped limo—likely for a fraction of what it cost to develop and build.

Mecum's Indy 2020 sale was originally set to take place May 12-17, but that has since been pushed back to June 23-28.
