A British firm has entered the record books after building the world’s longest MOBILITY SCOOTER – which is 10ft long and has its own mini-bar.

Orchard Mobility unveiled the amazing ‘Limomobiliser’, a three seater with a top speed of 4mph.

It took six weeks to build and comes complete with a drinks mixer, neon lights and even a CD player – making it perfect for a blue rinse brigade on a hen party.

The Limomobiliser was built by business partners Nigel Fitzgerald and Anwar Watson, who run Orchard Mobility in Taunton, Somerset.

They were celebrating this week after the wacky machine entered the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s longest mobility scooter.

To comply with regulations, they had to drive the Limomobiliser 100 metres in two directions with passengers on-board.

Nigel said: “One of the managing directors of a company we work with was retiring so we decided to make it for him.

“We made it from an old scooter and stretched it, fitted two more seats and a drinks mixer. It also has neon lights and a CD player.

“It is great fun and really grabs the attention of people who come into the shop or see it at trade shows. It is something different.

“The Limomobiliser is certainly not something you see every day and makes people smile when they see it.”

The one-off machine is not for sale and cost just a few hundred pounds in materials to convert from a standard machine.
