Earlier this week, pictures circulated of an Audi A8L limousine—not the homemade kind—that was really long. The custom built extended limo was 20.9 feet, 3.6 feet longer than the standard A8L, which no one would mistake for short.
At the time, Audi kept the buyer’s identity private, revealing only that he or she was European. But according, to the Norwegian website VG, the car is truly fit for a king, namely King Harald V of Norway.
The site says that King Harald purchased the limo for approximately $400,000. What he received is a car with a unique design. There are six doors and three rows of seats. Unlike in other limos, the two rows of rear seats do not face each other. Everything is oriented toward the front of the car. Perhaps the King does not like to look his driving companions in the eye. Or maybe they get carsick riding backwards. There is also a 7.9-foot-long glass panel along the roof of the limousine. If the king ever rents it out for a bachelorette party, everyone can hang out the roof.
Underneath the hood is a 310-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 that does 0-62 in 7.1 seconds and tops out at 155.3 miles per hour, not bad for a car that weighs 5,330 pounds.
Audi says it already has requests for more of the limos. But for now, King Harald has the only one. Proving once again, that it’s good to be king.
