Mr. Bean would approve.
If you grew up in the 1990s, there’s a good chance you laughed at Rowan Atkinson’s antics as Mr. Bean. In one of the most memorable scenes of the series, Bean drove his classic Mini Cooper while sat on the roof in a cosy armchair. Fast forward a few decades later, and YouTube stars Garage 54 ENG and MasterMilo82 have taken this concept to the next level.
If you’re unfamiliar with these YouTube stars, they regularly perform crazy stunts like running a Lada on salt, Pepsi and vegetable oil until the engine breaks, converting a Volvo into a swimming pool, and adding an external roll cage to a Volkswagen Golf.
For their latest stunt, the YouTube stars teamed up to create a bonkers car with outboard seats. Their car of choice? A Volvo V40 wagon. The irony, of course, is that Volvos are renowned for being safe and sensible, but this crazy creation is the exact opposite.
The seats of the Volvo V40 were mounted to the front of the car around six feet off the ground, allowing the team to drive it while sitting high above the roof exposed to the elements. It’s certainly a unique creation and watching the rear of the car lift off the ground every time the brakes are applied is hilarious. Eventually, the rear lifts so high that the seat mounts touch the ground. You probably don’t need us to point out the obvious safety risks, but this looks more fun and thrilling than a typical amusement park ride. At least it has seat belts, so there are some safety measures installed.
