#CarNews: Giant car motors into Indian museum



After designing cars shaped like a hamburger, tennis ball, shoe, handbag and a toilet, quirky Indian artist Sudhakar Yadav decided to go big.

The result is an eight-metre (26-foot) high car modelled on the 1922 Ford Tourer, which has gone on display at Yadav’s museum in the southern city of Hyderabad.

“We are aiming for the Guinness record of the world’s largest art car. It’s a new record and hopefully I will get it,” Yadav told AFP.

“It can also simulate the sound of an F1 car. I have designed this car especially for children who love to visit my museum,” said Yadav, who took three years to design and build the piece.

The car, which is also 15 metres (50 feet) long and 5.7 metres (19 feet) wide, boasts timber doors, windows and a staircase inside, although there is no engine under the hood.

A chess board, complete with black and white pieces, hangs from the ceiling, along with mini hot-air balloons.

The piece has been drawing a number of visitors since its unveiling on Tuesday.

All of the museum’s cars have been made from scrap, according to Yadav, who already holds the Guinness World Record for the largest tricycle, standing 12.67 metres high.

    What a massive step in the western region, its time we stop dirty politics and embark on untilizing the airport. Am just looking at opportunites in Kisumu and the towns around, namely kakamega, Bungoma Migori and Kisii and also Kericho. Export of Fish,Horticultural,Coffee,Tea and not forgetting the coming Tourist. I see i great feature in this country. Wakenya mpooo!! its high time we had 42 international airports in this country.
    To the new governors coming in, make it your priority that every county has good road networks and airports. If you cant do it we will oust you.
