YouTube's Favorite Madman Just Built A Bumper Car That Can Hit 100MPH

The Stig set a world record in the speedy machine.

You definitely don’t want to get bumped with this. 

England’s Colin Furze, a daredevil inventor with a huge YouTube following, built a bumper car with the engine of a motorbike inside it. 

Check out Furze giving his baby a run:

Furze created the bike for “Top Gear,” the BBC’s auto show. And when “Top Gear” is involved, you know The Stig is going to show up: 

With Guinness World Records adjudicator Lucia Sinigagliesi looking on, The Stig hit 107 miles per hour on one run. After a second run of 93 mph, the bumper car had an average of just over 100 mph – setting a world record.

In other words, he’s a mad genius.
