It’s nuts! A tricked-out Planters Nutmobile.

The nutty company kicked off its yearlong coast-to-coast tour with a stop in Chicago. They cracked open the door to the Nutmobile and gave RedEye a tour of one of its three pimped out rides.
The new peanut-on-wheels is 27-feet long, 11-feet tall and 8-feet wide equipped with a peanut-shaped gear shifter, removable peanut dashboard with a built-in reverse camera and navigation system, iPads and two big screen TVs. Seatback covers have peanut designs, the speakers are monocle-shaped, and the ceiling highlights a historical Mr. Peanut timeline.

The original Nutmobile has been around since 1935. Much like the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, the Nutmobile makes appearances all over the country.

For one year, three Nutmobiles will travel the U.S. visiting cities, offering samples, photo opportunities with the iconic Mr. Peanut.
