Perry Watkins is an English inventor who also has an appreciation for speed and innovative automobile design. He currently holds world records for the lowest car ever driven and for the smallest working car ever made. For that distinction he attached a 150 cc engine to a child’s toy van and drove it (video after the jump). But both of his previous feats paled in comparison to his one true desire – driving furniture at high speeds.
Watkins spent the past year building a dining room table car so he could break the Guinness World Record for fastest furniture, previously established by a guy who drove a couch in 2007. Watkins accomplished his goal over the weekend, reaching a top speed of 130 mph with his table, dubbed “Fast Food” *slide whistle*, during two laps on a race track.
