If you want to stand out on the street, length can help. This makes stretch limousines popular party vans. A giant version of the actually sweet VW Bulli has now been created in Berlin.

L.luxury, leather, gloss and mica. Wherever stretch limousines appear, stars and starlets are not far away. But it doesn’t always have to be a luxurious Hummer or an extra-long US sleigh. According to the motto “Make one out of five”, Christian Lemke and Stefan Schreiber from Berlin stretched a third generation VW Bulli, or T3 for short, to a length of 8.5 meters in more than 5000 hours!

"We are real T3 fans and have specialized in this van in our workshop," say the two of them. From a total of five badly battered vans, the Berliners built a stretch limousine with three axles and a total weight of 3.5 tons.

The three-axle construction in particular makes the vehicle particularly stable. Various stiffeners prevent the body from sagging. Stefan Schreiber: “We didn’t want a pot-bellied pig.” So that the later road approval would not be a problem, experts were also involved in the planning.

Instead of a series engine, a V6 diesel with 180 hp

In order to enable easy entry, the screwdrivers lengthened the sliding door on the side to 2.50 meters. A huge sliding roof benefits the feel-good atmosphere. The fact that it can still be opened mechanically is due to the fact that the T3 should come as close as possible to the original.

Apart from that, an electric roof would have been at the expense of the interior height. A lot has also changed technically under the new sheet metal. The series engine was replaced by a modern 180-hp V6 diesel from a VW Passat and, above all, takes into account the higher weight.

So that the new power and the additional kilos can be reliably stopped, the braking system has been brought up to date with the latest technology. There are now powerful disc brakes behind the six aluminum rims.

A rear view camera is a must at 14 meters

The driver’s cab has been upgraded with a handcrafted dashboard. Newly upholstered seats and fine materials create a classy ambience in the chauffeur area. Fold-out monitors make it possible for the driver to always have everything in view.

The rear camera, which is an indispensable aid when reversing, is also very important. By the way: the turning circle of the white giant is around 14 meters.

Dark tinted windows prevent outsiders from looking inside. With this car, great importance is attached to the privacy of the guests in the rear. The spacious interior, which was developed according to the ideas of the T3 specialists, offers every imaginable luxury that can be expected in such a vehicle.

All seating is covered with the finest leather. The two bar areas made of fine wood with integrated bottle coolers and glass holders are also perfectly fitted. A 47 inch flat screen is integrated in the front area.

Enthusiastic people on the street

Passengers are spoiled for choice on the way: TV, Playstation, or simply partying. In any case, the bar area in the back is well stocked. Shaken or stirred, cocktails can also be served here, which is certainly conducive to the mood in the seating area.

In the end, the only question that remains is who are the customers who are renting an old Volkswagen Transporter (nickname: Luise) as a VIP shuttle? Christian Lemke answers the question: "They are people who have a pronounced weakness for the VW brand."

But many are also enthusiastic about the interior height, because compared to American stretch limos you can stand almost upright in the T3. The best compliment for Christian and Stefan, however, is the spontaneous admiration that "Luise" arouses regularly.

It happens again and again that drivers get off at a red light, take a photo of the white giant with their cell phone and completely forget that a long traffic jam has long since formed behind them.
