Bumper car with 600cc engine breaks Guinness World Record

Colin Furze has done it again. The British engineer/inventor/YouTube phenomenon has created the world's fastest bumper car. For anyone who has ever driven a bumper car at a fair or carnival, a fast bumper car might seem like an oxymoron. But this souped-up 1960s dodgem features a 600cc engine and a top speed of 100.336 mph.

According to Rachel Swatman for Guinness World Records: "Top Gear‘s professional driver The Stig tested the vehicle at Bentwaters Airfield near Ipswich, Suffolk, UK and hit a lightning speed of 161.476 km/h (100.336 mph).

Bear in mind the average speed for a bumper car is just 5 mph!

The car took the garage inventor three weeks to build. Colin added a 600cc Honda motorbike engine, but ensured that the chassis remained that of a bumper car and the wheels were the same size, as required by the Guinness World Records rules for this title."
