Perry Watkins eyes the world’s fastest furniture record with Motorized table

There is no dearth of auto freaks who look to excel in one way or the other. A British motoring enthusiast and amateur mechanic Perry Watkins is one of these. The genius already holds the world records for the flattest (Flatmobile) and the smallest car (Wind Up). Now he’s created a speedy table, dubbed the Fastfood, from a Reliant scimitar sports car chassis and aims to break the world record for the fastest furniture. The motorized table is equipped with the fuel-injected 4 liter Land Rover Discovery engine, boosted by the nitrous oxide injection.

Apart from these, the motorized table has six chairs, elegant place setting and a dummy that bears a close resemblance to Top Gear's The Stig. The amazing vehicle has two silver teapots for the exhaust fumes, its brake lights encased in rolled up napkins and tax disc stuck onto the champagne bucket. On the top of this, the vehicle is street legal. Having driver’s seat in the middle of table, Fastfood has already hit a top speed of 103mph during the test runs. With an impressive 0-60mph in four seconds, the motorized table seems to easily outshine the previous record set in 2007 by Edd China and his motorized sofa, which reached 92mph.
