Finnijet- Antti Rahko’s Limousine

Each of us has his own hobby,but Antti Rahkos has his own dream and took him 10 whole years to create this limousine .

What weighs 7,500 pounds, is 29 foot long and made completely from junk scraps? Why, a limousine of course.

‘Finnijet’ belongs to Antti Rahko, a 72-year-old chauffeur from Finland. He immigrated to the USA  in 1984

and is now a resident of Palm Beach, Florida.
It took Rahko 10 whole years to build the limousine from scratch, initially using two Mercedes Benz station wagons

joined together, several parts from a 1962 Chrysler Imperial and various components from other vehicles.

Although the Finnijet does look a little odd from the outside, it’s something you could get used to rather quickly,

because of the tasteful way that it’s been done up. The exterior has about 86 lights, 36 mirrors and two jet engine

housings through which the exhaust is routed. The interior is spacious enough to seat 10, and it also comes

equipped with a microwave, television, freezer and a couple of air conditioning units.

What’s more, there’s even a functional sauna fitted in the passenger cabin.

To keep the beautiful beast running, three batteries and three alternators have been installed.

What’s marvelous about the Finnijet is that despite all its rather luxurious features, it drives pretty economically.

On the highway, Rakho says the limo achieves about 25 mpg, and the Mercedes turbo diesel power plant drives

a dual-wheel rear axle mounted in the center of the chassis. It has a total of 8 wheels that make sure the tire and

suspension components are not overtaxed. It isn’t too tough to drive around corners, despite the gigantic stature of the limo.

Rakho says that the Finnijet handles corners alright thanks to the steerable rear wheels that turn the opposite way of the front wheels.

The rear axle (that he got from a Chevy pickup truck) is installed backwards.
