The World’s Fastest Shed Features An Audi RS4 V8

As we are starting to learn, the UK is home to some rather ridiculous ‘vehicles’, none crazier than the world’s fastest shed.

Not long after Car Throttle met up with Edd China to experience the world’s fastest sofa, it had the opportunity to jump into this absolutely crazy shed made by Kevin Nicks.

Nicks built the vehicle in 2015 around a Volkswagen Passat and throughout the years, it has been powered by different engines. In its current form, it is powered by an Audi RS4 naturally-aspirated V8 pumping out an impressive 455 hp and powering the shed through to a top speed of 101.581 mph (163.479 km/h). That may not sound like very fast but when you consider the huge amounts of drag the car much create, it is certainly fast enough.

It’s pretty impressive just how comfortable the world’s fastest shed is and how usable it is on the street. Clearly, it does come with its compromises, though. For starters, the shed is very wide and isn’t suited to small English country lanes. Visibility is probably also a bit of an issue because there is no rear window. However, a number of cameras located across the shed’s exterior do help out with the huge blind spots.

The clip below briefly details the build the shed and shows images of how it came to life thanks to a steel frame which was built around a Passat and then clad in wood.
