After designing cars shaped like a hamburger, tennis ball, shoe, handbag and a toilet, quirky Indian artist Sudhakar Yadav decided to go big.
The result is an 8m (26ft) high car modelled on the 1922 Ford Tourer, which has gone on display at Yadav’s museum in Hyderabad.
“We are aiming for the Guinness record of the world’s largest art car. It’s a new record and hopefully I will get it,” Yadav said.
“It can also simulate the sound of an F1 car. I have designed this car especially for children who love to visit my museum,” said Yadav, who took three years to design and build the piece.
The car, which is also 15m long and 5.7m wide, boasts timber doors, windows and a staircase inside, although there is no engine under the hood.  
A chess board, complete with black and white pieces, hangs from the ceiling, along with mini hot-air balloons.
The piece has been drawing a number of visitors since its unveiling on Tuesday.
All of the museum’s cars have been made from scrap, according to Yadav, who already holds the Guinness World Record for the largest tricycle, standing 12.67m high.
