A limousine (or limo) is a luxury sedan or saloon car generally driven by a person that has been given the job to drive this like a driver and with a partition between the driver and the passenger compartment. Limousines often have a lengthened wheelbase. It was originally an enclosed automobile with open driver's seat . It is named after a type of cloak and hood that was worn by the inhabitants of the Limousin region that later resembled the covering of a carriage and much later used to describe an automobile body with a permanent top that extended
over the open driver's compartment. In modern use, a limousine is a luxury sedan or saloon car, especially one with a lengthened
wheelbase or driven by a driver . The chassis of a limousine may have been extended by the manufacturer or by an independent coach-builder . These are called "stretch" limousines and are traditionally black or white . Limousines are usually liveried vehicles,driven by professional driver . As the most expensive form of automobile good transportation, limousines are culturally associated with wealth or power and are commonly cited as examples of conspicuous consumption . Among the less wealthy, limousines are often hired during special events (most commonly weddings and proms).
