Actually a limousine or limo is a saloon or luxury sedan car that is driven by the chauffeurs, and there is a partition in car between compartment of driver and the passenger. And limos are often the lengthened wheelbase. These are traditionally black or white, and called “stretch” limousines.
Being a most expensive form of automobile in ground transportation, these are mostly property of the wealthy people, and the less wealthy persons often hire the limousine during their special occasions such as, Proms, Birthdays, Night outs, weddings and bachelor parties.
The Automobile Engineers Society defined the limousine in 1916, as a closed car seating three to five inside, with driver’s seat outside.
