World's fastest couch can do 100 miles per hour in racing sprint

What's so special about your sofa? It's made out of Italian leather? Waterproof? Great for lazing around to play Xbox 360? It's time to teach your couch some new tricks, because this sofa can probably beat your car in a street race.

As always, safety first. The world's fastest couch can hit speeds of 101 miles per hour in a direct sprint. It uses an internal combustion engine to speed along and "requires an attached front desk to serve as an aerodynamic element." An ordinary couch, this is not.

That, and it needs a professional driver, lots of safety gear and an airport runway to jet on.

Compared to that couch water ski, we think the obsession with modding couches is just nuts now.
