The Stig is a bit tired of driving one supercar after another. So, what has Top Gear’s tame racing drive done – is it on a hypercar-only diet?
Not really. Instead, it seems that Stiggie will be found in a contraption that can be described as a… sleeper bumper car.
The contraption comes from Colin Furze, the DIY hero who has made the world’s fastest mobility scooter to a hover bike that can actually lift a man off the ground, this guy can put together just about any sort of machine.
The practical man, who claims he has acquired all his skills mixing Internet videos with tons of experimentation, has turned into a bit of a YouTube personality, so his collaboration with Top Gear shouldn’t come as a surprise.
As for the vehicle that will fill in the velocity void found inside The Stig, this started out in life as a bumper car. Nevertheless, the body of the thing is probably the only thing that stays in place.
The rest of this potentially terrifying bumper car involve a custom chassis, a go-kart rear axle and a Honda motorcycle engine delivering around 100 ponies.
We’ll get to see the second part of the build video next Thursday and, until then, we can all think about what could be the most important question deriving from this tale – does Colin Furze know the current identity of The Stig?
