Brad and Jen Campbell from Arizona, USA have stormed into the new Guinness World Records 2017 Edition book in a 9.8 m (32 ft) long monster truck.
The couple created the world’s Longest monster truck, measuring 3.6 metres (12 ft) tall and weighing a huge 6,800 kg (15,000 lb) – that’s about the same weight as a male elephant!
The enormous vehicle can take 12 passengers at one time and its body was originally part of a limousine.
The monster truck packs a powerful 750-hp engine, but owing to its considerable weight it only has a maximum speed of around 45 mph (72.4 km/h).
Owner Jen Campbell told Guinness World Records: “To see us in the Guinness World Records book is really awesome, because as a kid growing up I always got it every year … I knew I was never going to grow out my fingernails to match that guy, was never going to be able to do 6,000 cartwheels – so to see this is really awesome.”
