Watch Colin Furze Turn A Bumper Car Into A 600cc 100BHP Monster

British mad garage inventor, Colin Furze, strikes again and this time, he was asked by BBC to build The Stig, the anonymous race car driver from BBC television series Top Gear, a new ride.

In response to this request, Furze set out to procure a 1960s dodgem AKA bumper car and proceed to turn it into anything but an electricity-driven flat ride. The reborn bumper car is given a set of go-kart wheels and at its heart, it has a 100BHP 600cc 4-cylinder motor pulled from a Honda sports bike. Already, you know it is going to be an insane ride, don’t you? Continue reading Watch Colin Furze Turn A Bumper Car Into A 600cc 100BHP Monster

Who Needs A Treehouse When You Can Have An 18-Foot Tall ‘Playable’ AT-AT

British garage inventor Colin Furze is known to invent and build all sorts of crazy stuff, ranging from fire-breathing pulse jet-powered trike to homemade hoverbike to ‘less insane’ things like remote controlled trash can, but for his latest build, it was surprisingly sane and danger-free too, well, that’s unless you count falling off an AT-AT as a real danger. So, yes. Colin has constructed an enormous AT-AT based off the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story movie and he wasn’t in it alone; eBay UK has his back with all the supplies he needed to realize a real world AT-AT and no, I am 100 percent sure he did not spend 226.5 million dollars to build it.
