The World’s Quickest And Fastest….Dinner Table?

pw2

Over the long history of drag racing, we’ve seen a lot of very unique machines go down the race track, be it in competition or as a pure exhibition. But a dinner table? That ain’t one of them.

But there it is, at England’s Santa Pod Raceway, six chairs and a Queen Ann dining table, draped in a tablecloth with a full course meal, champagne bucket, silverware, candelabra, fruit, and all, turning a quarter-mile lap at over 113 MPH. In the annals of wild off-the-wall exhibition creations, this one takes the cake. No pun intended, as it doesn’t appear the cake had been served on this table yet.

pw1But, of course, the world’s quickest and fastest dinner table isn’t what it seems.

England’s own Perry Watkins is the mastermind be hid the table, and while it’s not his first record-breaking creation, it’s quite possibly his monist interesting. Watkins is also the proud owner of the record for the smallest car as well as the flattest car, and with those in hand, his next venture took him to the drag strip after spending thirteen months building what you see here.

The table was constructed using a 1994 Reliant Scimitar Sabre, a sporty two-door coupe produced by the British carmaker. Watkins modified the car in his garage, and added nitrous oxide to the original engine, which measures either 1.4 or 1.8 liters, depending on the option the particular car came with.

Kinda’ brings a whole new meaning to the term, fast food, doesn’t it?
