So I’m sitting around the other day, scrolling through my phone, trying to decide which person in my contact list I like the least, and I get a tweet from some guy. That "some guy" was a person named Max Roberts who uses the Twitter handle "Maxroberts99." And what he was tweeting me was this thing.
This thing is a 2010 Subaru Tribeca that’s quite a bit different from other 2010 Subaru Tribeca models. That’s because this one is a stretch limousine. Yes, that’s right: Someone out there took a Subaru Tribeca — one of the most unusual modern crossovers — and stretched it into a limousine. Subsequent Twitter conversations convinced me this was done by Subaru of New England, the independent distributor for Subaru vehicles in the Northeast, which makes sense, as they’d probably be the only ones who would want such a vehicle.
So what are the particulars? It’s a 2010 Tribeca, finished in Graphite Gray Metallic with a Slate Gray interior, and it’s traveled just over 42,000 miles. Up front, it looks completely normal, with a normal front end and a normal front part of the cabin — but things have changed in back. That’s where a giant leather bench seat has been added, along with a bar and a television for passengers who are getting chauffeured around. Interestingly, it appears that two additional front bucket seats were added in back.
On the side, the Tribeca looks like you’d expect — a stretched Subaru Tribeca. The Tribeca was never the most handsome SUV, and nothing looks really good when it’s stretched, but the Tribeca is fine enough. Interestingly, aside from the stretch, it has one important item that distinguishes it from a normal Subaru SUV: Larger gold wheels, which add to the Tribeca’s bling.
If you’re looking for a limo version of the Subaru Tribeca, this one can be yours. It’s offered by Nick’s Motor Sales in rural, tiny Kalkaska, Michigan, where it’s listed for $37,995 — big money for a Tribeca, but reasonable when you consider its limousine status.
