That’s a respectable figure for something as absurd, heavy, and aerodynamically efficient as the Fastest Shed.
The bizarre creation that you see in the image here and in motion in the video below is the Fastest Shed. A motorized shed designed and built by Kevin Nicks of Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom is capable of clocking a remarkable 101.58 mph top speed which is a record of sorts. So it wasn’t long before its creator decided to take the shed on wheels to a drag strip and let it rip.
Thanks to the step taken, the Fastest Shed arrived at the Santa Pod Raceway in England to set a quarter-mile. VeeDub Racing YouTube channel has the footage and you can see the bonkers sight for yourselves.
Employing a 1999 Volkswagen Passat frame, an Audi RS5 4.2-liter V8, Quattro all-wheel drive and air suspension, the Fastest Shed is claimed to have around 450 horses under its…floor(?).
At the drag strip, the vehicle covered the quarter-mile distance in 15.49 seconds which may not be that impressive when pitted against kind of machinery which are showing up these days. But then again, this is a shed on wheels, with the weight and aerodynamic efficiency of a stack of bricks. And still, it beat a Vauxhall Astra in the other lane.
