Brilliant (but possibly crazy) inventor Colin Furze took a bumper car, gave it a 600cc engine, and then had The Stig from Top Gear take it for a spin. Reportedly it clocked a little over 160km/h, breaking a world record. Behind the scenes video here and here, showing how Colin managed to squeeze an engine into it.
It's finished and it's FAST....so fast its the worlds fastest as approved by Guinness World Records This 600cc monster is the work of hours of shed time working out how to squeeze a sports bike and so wheels into a dodgem shell without making a death trap, but surprisingly in a straight line it's actually quite a solid ride, even when reaching 3 figure speeds.
So did i make a ride fit for The Stig..................I think so.
