Built on an aluminum frame, the 650 kg single-seater that set the new record - 27.5 km per hour over a distance of 107 meters in the descent of a garage - with a celebrity such as Michael Andretti, the driver's son. ace of the wheel Mario, driving.
It took 46 hours to make it with a team of nine, led by famed cake artist Mike Elder (owner of Black Sheep Custom Cakes) who cooked 139 cakes by coating the shape of the car with butter icing and a sheet of fondant to seal everything.
Of note, as required by the Guinness Regulation, which sets the quota of cars to eat at 90% - even the sponsors' stickers were edible.
