Stretched cars: the good, bad and ugly
If you're thinking of pitching in with a presidential limo design, here's some inspiration…
Posted: 15 Mar 2014
If you've not seen already, the Department of Homeland Security has invited design pitches for the next presidential limo. And we want you to come up with it. We'll even get a proper render of your suggestion drawn up if it's good enough.
Thing is, the contract's limited to major domestic American carmakers with a primary HQ in the USA. Which pretty much restricts things to the country's big three - Ford, GM, and Chrysler. Though, as we've already mentioned, due to the slightly confusing state of who owns what in the current carmaker landscape, there's a bit of flexibility for your base car.
Now, we understand that this is a big ask. And, being the helpful, fragrant-smelling internetists we are, we've put together this collection of elongated cars to give you some inspiration. Some are good, some are bad, and one looks like a half-chewed chip. But we'll leave it up to you to decide which is which.
Now get your crayons out, then send your offering to firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Presidential Limo' in the subject line.
