Forget stretch limousines and Lamborghinis, brothers John and Geof Bitmead created the ultimate mode of transport for any adult who wants to be the coolest guy or gal in town.

The UK siblings took the iconic Little Tikes Cozy Coupe children’s car and made one big enough for themselves.

The souped-up motor looks exactly like the famous red and yellow car for kiddies – except it includes an engine.

Pictures of Geof sitting in their record-breaking largest Cozy Coupe alongside his granddaughter Lily in her own regular-sized one show the impressive scale of it.

The big kids’ toy is 2.7 m (8 ft 10.2 in) long and as you can see, is large enough to fit a grown man who is young at heart.

The car was made to be road legal and can reach speeds of up to 70 mph (112 km/h) – going from 0-60 mph in 17 seconds - although it's no longer on the road.

Geof, who works in paintwork and bodywork, and John, who does fabrications, sculptures and custom paintwork, had already built the car before being encouraged to apply for a record.

John said: “It was meant to be built in 30 days but took three months in the end. There was a lot involved in building it.”

They made the car out of an old Daewoo Matiz SE 0.8 and the whole project set them back about £4,000 ($4,848).

It has room inside for two adults and has working headlights, mirrors, seat belts and even airbags. Safety first!

The car was declared a record holder in August 2016, and John still has it today, although he no longer takes it out for a spin.

He’s previously racked up 7,000 miles in the motor and says he would often turn heads while driving around his hometown in Oxfordshire.

He said: “The reactions were spectacular wherever I drove in it, I’ve done over 7,000 miles in it, but the worst thing was when people driving would take pictures on their phones at the same time.”

He added: “I still have it but it’s looking a bit poorly and needs a lot of work done to it but at the moment I just don’t have the time.

“It would be lovely to find the time to be able to do it but obviously finances dictate what I do with my life.”
