Very important but on a budget? You need this Toyota Camry stretch limo

With blue velour seats and a reliable nature, this could be the perfect VIP transport, with one catch.

There’s no better way to manage your VIP status and your balance sheet than with this 1987 Toyota Camry Stretch Limousine.

The grey Camry is offered for sale, with a regular-sized but identically-coloured twin, only with one minor inconvenience… it’s in Norway.

Granted, that 14,500km trip to drive it home would be a nice addition to the car’s 165,000km odometer reading, with the 88kW/171Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine no doubt offering a reliable and efficient base for comfortable touring (until you reach the coastline).



The dark grey over blue velour Camry features a vinyl roof and a convenient fifth door that allows easy access to the walnut drinks cabinet and entertainment unit.

There is a divider to separate the driver from the passenger compartment, and the car, complete with five-speed manual transmission, looks to have held up well with only a few minor tears in the rear seats stopping you from hitting the low-key nightclub circuit.

If you think this is an amazing unicorn, the car is in fact one of two stretch Camrys sold new by Toyota in Norway during the ‘80s.

Priced at 189,000 Norwegian Krone ($AU27,500), the unique Camry is well priced, and being older than 25 years is eligible for personal import and historic/club permit registration in most Australian states, even as a left-hand-drive car.

So if this is the year for you to flex, but not that much, perhaps the ultimate in conservative opulence is the Camry limo you never knew you needed.
