Cadillac Carpool DeVille to Attempt Land Speed Record

Nothing quite says luxury like a Cadillac and what better way to relax than in a hot tub? Combine the two, and you get the Cadillac Carpool DeVille.

Two ingenious engineers from Los Angeles have worked for years to create their hot tub masterpiece and now will be headed to the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah this August to attempt to set a land speed record for the fastest hot tub, with the lofty goal of hitting 100 mph.

To create the hot tub of their dreams, Phil Weicker and Duncan Forster used an old 1969 Cadillac Coupe Deville, which they converted to hold 5,000 pounds of water and be a functioning hot tub, all while maintaining its driving capabilities.

They created a custom-fitted fiberglass lining and converted the gas pedal and shifter to a speed boat throttle to keep everything waterproof and drivable. All of the hot tub components are stored in the truck, including the pump, filter, and overflow tank.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $11, 251, the duo will be headed to Utah for Speed Week August 9 through the 15.
