* The Duke of Detroit from {{WesternAnimation/Motorcity}} has a whole ''fleet'' of limousines of various lengths in his mansion, but his attack vehicle of choice is a limo-tank large enough to fire regular-sized limousines as projectile weapons.

Usually featured in comedy works, this is any very, very, ''very'' long limousine belonging to some [[RichInDollarsPoorInSense rich jerkass]] who may or may not be CompensatingForSomething. Often used as a (no pun intended) OverlyLongGag when a good portion of a scene is reserved for watching a limo take a lifetime to pull over. Of course, the main character will land inside (usually more or less forcefully) at least once. Sometimes the absurdly long vehicle will have nonsensical features like a hot-tub or a bowling alley attached, or perhaps a small car ''inside'' the limousine to help people travel within it more quickly.

Someone coming out from this car will usually use a FeetFirstIntroduction.

* A 2016 SNL sketch has a limousine ordering at a drive-thru. It has multiple people a few feet apart that are all seated as if they're sitting in the back seat.

* Pinky Fox from ''WesternAnimation/RockADoodle'' drives a large, pink limo with twelve wheels. Toward the end of the film, when Edmund, Patou, Peepers, and Snipes attempt to get Chanticleer back to their farm to stop the villainous owl, they actually all steal Pinky's limo before Peepers gets them all to escape using another vehicle they all stole: Pinky's helicopter.

* The book adaptation of the ''McGeeAndMe'' episode ''A Star in the Breaking'' had an ImagineSpot where Nick shows up for the premier of his film debut. The narration hints at the extreme length of his limo by repeatedly interrupting its descriptions of the excited crowd to say "The limousine continues to arrive", adding on the final instance "(we're talking serious stretch here)".
* ''OurDumbCentury'' from Website/TheOnion includes an article parodying ginormous cars of the 1950s. The Cadillac Dreadnought rolls on eight wheels, seats 24 people, and has three-foot-tall tail-fins, a basement, a dashboard-mounted martini mixer, and an optional three-season patio.

* The animated opening of ''The Return of ThePinkPanther'' has the Pink Panther arrive at a movie theatre in a pink limo with an incredibly long hood... and a tiny passenger compartment and open driver's section.

* Stretching an [[TheAllegedCar AMC Pacer]] is absurd by itself already. The Mirthlimo from ''Film/WaynesWorld 2'' has grown so long that it seems to require two rear axles.

May relate to PimpedOutCar or more specifically, RiceBurner. However, Absurdly Long Limousines rely on exaggerated lengths while Rice Burners rely on exaggerated styling.

* Three were built as part of a ''TopGear'' Challenge; of special note is Clarkson's, built from a tiny Fiat Panda and retaining the donor car's two-door configuration requiring passengers to commute within the car on a ''Film/TheGreatEscape''-tunnel-style cart, along with being so long it was no-longer road legal. In the final section of the challenge, Clarkson's limo had to be shortened so he could legally drive it in London, which lead to it breaking in half along the seam. Undeterred, Clarkson simply used the front half of his Panda, courtesy of front-wheel drive, to deliver his passenger.
