Limousine Journey from Luxury to Rental Vehicle

On Saturday, I was stressed with my online assignments thus decided to free myself by doing off filed net surfing and reached at limousine cars.

Where, I know more about the luxury vehicle sedan especially one with a lengthened wheelbase or driven by a chauffeur

Limousines are the most expensive form of automobile ground transportation, limousines are culturally associated with extreme wealth or power, and are commonly cited as an example of conspicuous consumption.

Further, knew that the first automobile limousine built in 1902 and the word limousine is derived from the name of the French region Limousin, because this covered compartment physically resembled the cloak hood worn by the shepherds there.
The first “stretch limousine” was created in Fort Smith, Arkansas around 1928 by a coach company named Armbruster.

These cars were primarily used to transport famous “big band” leaders, such as Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman, and their bands and equipment. These early stretch limousines were often called “big band buses”.

But now days some limousines are owned by individuals, many are owned by governments to transport senior politicians, by large companies to transport executives, or by broadcasters to transport guests.

Additional to this now middle income group section of society has also started to enjoy less wealthy; limousines are also often hired during special events (most commonly weddings and funerals.

On asking further, I also came to know that many Indian settled in USA and UK have started their rental services of limousine cars, like KR Limo offering limousines rental services in Seattle Washington DC and other cities and states of U.S.
