* 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.

* One episode of ''TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' had London mentioning that she has a fleet of limousines so long that they can't turn corners. If she is traveling a route that goes around corners she needs to get out of one limo and into another.

* A funny contraption usually made for fun, for advertising or simply to show it can be done, is the sportscar turned absurdly long limousine, which include [[http://carscoop.blogspot.com/2010/02/find-of-day-lancia-delta-hf-integrale.html a Lancia Delta Integrale with a mini-bar]] and a stretched Ferrari 360 Modena with gullwing doors. As expectable, the claim to be ''sports'' cars should be taken with a grain of salt. Granted, the Lancia Delta isn't a sports car ''per se'', but a compact 5-door hatchback. This limo just happens to be based on the hotted-up version.

* An aside in ''[[XWingSeries Solo Command]]'' mentions the existence of several luxury [[FlyingCar airspeeder]] limousines, spotted near a major corporation's executive entrance. (And used as [[SherlockScan evidence]] that it's probably not where the secret off-the-books project is located.) The vehicles aren't described in depth, but one of the Wraiths claims they were big enough to fit their own ''swimming pools''.

* ''Our Dumb Century'' 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.

* This was a recurring element of the ''WesternAnimation/PowerpuffGirls'' show. An enormous white limousine that is several windows long and takes a few seconds to cross the whole screen is always the Mayor's ride of choice in times of leisure. He rides in the back.
