4. Volkswagen Bus Limo
The Volkswagen T1 Samba bus is one of the most collectible and coveted people carriers in the world. These beautiful vans command high prices that are often worth of $100,000. Virtually all restorers, collectors and dealers keep them in a condition as close to the original as possible. But, there’s always a brave soul who begs to differ. While there’s not much known about the people behind this crazy project, there are some interesting numbers surrounding it.
This 1965 Samba stretch limousine features 33 windows, which is 10 more than the regular 23-window Samba bus. It can also accommodate up to 12 people, but due to the added weight, it has a 2.074cc engine. The interior has LCD screens, a high-quality audio system and LED lights. There’s also a rearview camera to make everyday driving easier.
This impressive VW limo was once located in Hawaii on the island of Maui. The owner listed it on eBay in 2015. The most incredible part of the story is that it sold for $220,000, two times more than the average price of a factory-spec VW Samba.
All in all, the T1 Samba is already one of the most wanted cars with a rich surfing and hippie heritage. But the stretch version is even cooler, especially in the VW color scheme, with a ragtop roof and a matching surfboard. When it comes to the VW Samba, having more windows is equal to having more fun.
