An eccentric car enthusiast has created the world’s fastest shopping cart with a top speed of around 210 Km/h (130 Mp/h). The trolley with a seating capacity of six people has a 5.8-litre V8 Chevrolet powered by a 290 horsepower engine, normally used in muscle cars.
Cal VanSant built the giant trolley as a stunt for his son-in-law Brent Musser but they now hire it out for promotional events. He said: ‘Some of my inspiration actually came from the BBC show Top Gear.
The 49-year-old, from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, hopes to set a new shopping trolley world speed record.
