Strange facts-Wacky Cars

It must be the World's most bizarre selection of vehicles.

The snooker table, tennis ball and cricket bat are guaranteed to turn heads as they speed you home at up to 50km per hour.

Designer Kanyaboyina Sudhakar made this life-size snooker table-styled motorcar to measure for the world's finest players. The 48-year-old designed the vehicle to the exact dimensions of a standard International snooker table and fitted it with a 150cc engine. Complete with head lights, indicators, suspension and steering the radical vehicle can drive at speeds of up to 50km an hour.

'I designed this to commemorate the World Snooker Championships and when I took it there all the players used it,' said Kanyaboyina.

Kanyaboyina started designing outrageous vehicles as a student 25 years ago.

He scours scrap yards for all his materials, including the engines, and spends hours in his workshop constructing the incredible creations.

All his cars are on display in his museum in Hyderabad, India.
