World's Fastest Shed
With how fast technology is progressing, just hearing someone say “world’s fastest” doesn’t quite have the same effect it used to, that is unless…you’re talking about this shed. Based on a 1999 Volkswagen Passat, this vehicle had to be completely built from the ground up with an additional metal frame to give the wooden exterior strength, while power comes from an Audi RS4-sourced 4.2-liter V8 engine generating 455-horsepower, all running the Quattro all-wheel-drive system.

Its owner also had to build a custom hydraulic suspension from a kit, which lets him drop the ride height so that the vehicle really does resemble a shed when parked. The wheels come from a Volkswagen Transporter wrapped in commercial vehicle tires to handle the vehicle’s weight. Unfortunately, there’s only enough seating for two people in the cabin.
