Carpool DeVille: The World’s Fastest Hot Tub

by Paul Strauss

Engineering students Duncan Forster and Phil Weicker gutted out a 1969 Cadillac Coupe de Ville, replacing its interior with a fully-functional hot tub. It’s been fitted with waterproof marine-grade levers for its transmission, gas and brake controls. The hot tub’s heating and pump system are located in the car’s trunk, and a custom air suspension system to help the car carry around over 5,000 pounds of water and its occupants.

Duncan and Phil plan on taking their water-filled land vessel to the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah on August 8, 2014 – in hopes of breaking the record for the fastest car with a hot tub in it. They recently completed a successful Kickstarter campaign to add safety equipment, and provide transportation for their Bonneville run.

We wonder how much water will splash out during the drive – and how much will evaporate in the hot desert sun.
