The Learjet limo is based on a Learjet 28 private aircraft that was produced between 1977 and 1982. Learjet is one of the best manufacturers in the business of private aircraft and their aircraft are used by billionaires and even the top military brass of a few nations.

Dan and Frank got to work on the Learjet and took off the wings from both the sides. The landing gear was stripped and the aircraft was then fitted with axles at the front and rear. The biggest mechanical change though was the addition of a LS-based General Motors Vortec V8 engine to drive the rear wheels.

The tail of the aircraft is left as it was with the stabiliser and elevator still on it. The Learjet 28 was once powered by two General Electric Turbojet engines, but they now have been replaced with lights where the exhaust once sent out hot gases and a massive speaker where the engines once sucked in air.

Speakers along with ambient lighting have also been mounted near the landing gear and also at the rear inside the new bumpers. A majority of changes to the learjet have been done inside the aircraft. The interiors look like they have been taken straight out of a posh club in Las Vegas.
