What is a limousine or limo? Limo or Limousine is a vehicle with a longer than normal luxury body. Usually length of the car extended by car manufacturing company or by independent cat builder. Typical or common limo colors are black and white. Before middle of 90s use of chauffeured limousine service was trademark of success and wealth. There are numerous events where usage of limousine service must be present.

There is couple of forms limousine ownership: large companies to transport executives, or by broadcasters to transport guests, governments to transport senior politicians, and owned by individuals. Most limousines, however, operate as livery vehicles.

The first automobile limousine, built in 1902, was designed so the driver sat outside under a covered compartment. 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. An alternate etymology has the chauffeur wearing a Limousin style cloak in the open drivers compartment, for protection from the weather.

So, who is the first person responsible for creation of stretched limo? History has only name of coach company or custom shop as we call them now. The name of this company is Armbruster. This company created special vehicle for big bands widely popular at that time. It was designed to fit all big band including musical instruments.

In many places, proper attire is worn by the chauffeur at all times. This usually includes a cleaned and pressed black or dark suit and jacket, a pressed, crisp dress shirt and appropriate tie, as well as polished black shoes and even gloves. Some companies have uniforms for their chauffeurs, and some require that hats are worn in addition to the uniform. Some companies do not keep strictly to this standard, and there is wide variation throughout the transportation industry.

Automobile manufacturers market specific makes and models that are targeted at particular socio economic classes, and thus social status came to be associated more with a particular vehicle than ownership of a car per se. Therefore, automakers differentiate among their product lines in collusion with the car-buying public. While a high price is the most frequent factor, it is styling, engineering, and even public opinion which cars had the highest and lowest status associated with them.
