We fully expect an environmentally conscious A-lister to pull up to the red carpet in one of these soon. The owner of a salvage yard in Indiana made what had to be the first Toyota Prius limousine. Remarkably, there's a market for the "Primo," as he's had orders for three more.
Steve Woodruff makes the Primos out of two wrecked Prii (yes, that's really the plural form). He says the process, which is all done by hand, takes about 90 days. The finished, longer product still gets 44 mpg. For now building Primos is just a hobby, but Woodruff hopes his idea takes off. A limo company out in Las Vegas just ordered two of his fabrications.
It's your move, Hollywood.
