HYDERABAD (Web Desk) – Indian car designer Sudhakar Yadav has attempted to set a second Guinness record by building what he hopes will be the largest car in the world.
The stationary vehicle – modelled on the 1922 Ford Tourer – is 26 feet (8m) tall and 50 feet long – nearly twice as high as a London double-decker bus, the BBC reports.
Mr Yadav already has a Guinness record for the world’s tallest tricycle.
He owns a car museum in the southern city of Hyderabad where he displays a number of “whacky” car models.
They come in all shapes and sizes and include a toilet commode, an aubergine, a billiards table and a lipstick.
“We are aiming for the Guinness record of the world’s largest art car. It’s a new record and hopefully I will get it,” Mr Yadav said.
It could simulate the sound of a Formula One car and, like all of the museum’s cars, had been made from scrap, he said.
The car, which is also 50 feet long and 19 feet wide, boasts timber doors, windows and a staircase inside, although there is no engine under the hood.
His tricycle is even taller than the car – a staggering 41.5 feet.
