Everyone wants to prove something. Whether it’s an innate ability or something stupid, people want to be noticed. A great way of doing that is to obtain a title in the Guinness World Records.
Here are five of the most bizarre records in the automotive world.
The longest launch of a golf ball landed in a moving car
If it doesn’t sound weird enough, then you need to look at the video. There, none other than former F1 driver David Coulthard drives a Mercedes-Benz SLS MAG Roadster, trying to catch a golf ball launched by the professional player Jake Shephert. At the end of the day, the record was 275 meters.
Most people crammed into a Smart car
Torment, pain and a very small car. That would be the best description for this record. If you don’t have the patience to look at the video, then you should know that no less than 16 New Zeeland girls flocked into a Smart car.
The smallest car in the world
It has a single cylinder engine taken from a quad for children and measures 126.47 cm in length, 63.5 cm in height and 65.41 cm in width. And yes, it is allowed to run on public roads, perfect for daily routes through the city.
The fastest radio-controlled car in the world
A toy car reached the maximum speed of 302.56 km/h (188 miles/hour). Does it sound unbelievable? Take a look at the video.
Longest recorder reverse car jump
Take a Chevrolet Spark (Sonic in the U.S.A), two ramps and a madman by the name of Rob Drydek to lead to an end a record as bizarre as it is dangerous: the longest recorder reverse car jump: 27.2 meters.
