A British gardener by the name of Kevin Nicks is the official record holder for the fastest shed in the world. Yup, you read that correctly, a shed. His top speed record is an admirable 96.8mph, set at the Wheelie and Top Speed Championship at Elvington Airfield in York. His 2.5 ton Volkswagen Passat powered contraption gets up to speed courtesy of a 75 shot of nitrous. Next up, he plans to challenge the 100mph barrier.

All we can think is, if there is a world record for this, other people must be doing it too.
