Take a look inside the extravagant ‘Midnight Rider,’ a $2.5 million semi/limo


These photos and videos will take you inside a record-breaking custom luxury truck called the “Midnight Rider.”

Earlier this year, one of the world’s most famous custom vehicles was put up for auction by Barrett-Jackson, and the photos they shared of the 1987 Peterbilt 379 have to be seen to be believed.

The build on the truck was completed in 2004 after California couple Michael and Pamela Machado spent $2.5 million to create the heavy-duty luxury limo over seven years.

Midnight Rider is 70 feet long, eight feet wide, and weighs 25 tons. It can hit top speed of 90 m.p.h. and can comfortably seat 40 people.

The vehicle was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records in 2004 as the world’s largest/heaviest limousine. The truck was operated as a rental vehicle for many years before it was sold by the Machados to the Irontree Management company, who in turn put the truck up for auction, according to autoevolution. The truck reportedly sold at auction for $330,000.

Check out the videos below for a better look at the Midnight Rider.
