English electrician Joseph Elliot loves his scooter, he loves going fast even more. Having previously held the world record for the fastest scooter Joseph recaptured the title with an insanity confirming top speed of 112 mph.
A straight flat track in Warwickshire was the scene of the world record attempt. On August 12 Joesph dared to dream big, and lived to tell his tale. Riding his highly modified but tiny Lambretta scooter Joseph took the world record with a blistering quarter mile time of 11.87. This pocket rocket could literally take most supercars at the lights while still being able to park anywhere you like.
The highly customized Lambretta has dual 172cc engines working together to provide 58 bhp while carbon fiber helps keep the weight down to something similar to a pair of shoes.
