Who among us hasn’t looked at a classic bumper vehicle, with its strange dimensions and skittering dynamics, immediately started thinking about motorcycle engine swaps?
YouTube’s Colin Furze did the deed, cramming the 600cc motorcycle engine under the vintage dodgem’s body—and when he fitted The Stig behind the wheel, a little red rocket shot its way into the Guinness Book of World Records.
You may know Colin Furze from his enviable professional output—strapping outrageous motors to unlikely wheeled vehicles.
Previously, he Is built things like the world’s fastest baby stroller, and lapped Silverstone on THE hot-rodded mobility scooter with THE decidedly non-stock gasoline engine. He’s our kind of crazy.
Well, when he was approached by the BBC to build the record-breaking dodgem for The Stig, he knew exactly how to accomplish the deed.
Watch in the video below as Top Gear’s tame racing driver rockets his way into the record books with the 100-mph average speed, then scroll down to see exactly how Colin Furze built this madcap machine. If you take some inspiration from the project, we salute you.
