Furze, 40, from Lincolnshire, has been known for his inventions, including the drivable hot tub car, and the world’s fastest mobility scooter.

Furze used a golf buggy to develop the impressive Landspeeder weighing 40 kilos. Released ahead of the Star Wars Film, The Rise of Skywalker this month, it’s believed to be the only full-scale model metal Landspeeder in existence.

Traveling at 25mph using a wheeled power, Furze said; ‘I built the Landspeeder vehicle by adapting a golf buggy and as far as I know it’s the only full-scale model in existence which has jets and made from metal. Others are made from fiberglass.’

Sourcing most of the parts from eBay, Furze revealed he’s very pleased with the outcome as it was the first time he had shaped a metal.

‘It’s very comfortable to drive as the gold buggy has suspension. I would have liked it a bit more legroom.’ He added.

The inventor is set to release a second video of the construction project on his YouTube channel

The inventor is, however, set to also release a second video of the construction project on his YouTube channel, including a few shocking designs he included.
