Tampa, Fla.-area operator Olympus Limo Inc. has taken delivery of three all-new Livery Edition J4500s from Motor Coach Industries (MCI).

The high-spec, all-black coaches, built specifically for growing group business in the limousine market, will support Olympus Limo’s 45-vehicle fleet including sedans, SUVs, vans, minibuses, and two pre-owned D4505 and J4500 coaches.

“These are our first new coaches,” said CEO Ted Koutsos, who with his wife Katie, started New Port Richey, Fla.-based Olympus with two stretch limousines in 1996. “Now, we’re positioned to offer a higher end level of luxury transport demanded by many of the corporate and destination management companies we serve today, especially on longer 600-mile plus coach trips.”

Koutsos chose MCI’s 2019 Livery Edition coaches for their comfort, amenities, advance technologies, and strikingly black exterior. The model features industry-leading curb appeal, best-in-class legroom, baggage capacity, and interior space. The Livery Edition adds black leather diamond stitch seating for 56 passengers in addition to woodgrain flooring, a programmable lighting package to personalize the interior in variable hues of red, green, or blue, a top-of-the-line entertainment system and power outlets with UBS ports at each seat.

The 2019 model is also equipped with an e-fan cooling package and clean-diesel Cummins engine to improve fuel efficiency every mile.

For added safety, Olympus added MCI’s optional 360-degree camera that provides a bird’s-eye view around the entire coach to assist with parking and small movements.
