The Golf Buggy is a timeless icon. Its excellent manoeuvrability and swiftness over hilly terrain have made it the vehicle of choice for comedy getaways in film and television.

What it isn't though, is fast. Until now that is. Plum Quick Motors have built what is officially the world's fastest Golf Buggy, proven by a record-breaking run which saw the tiny motor reach a massive 118.76 mph.

The incredible speed was set in just 12.241 seconds making this not only the fastest but definitely one of the quickest accelerating in the world.
