This is the Limobilizer - the world's longest mobility scooter which measures 10ft and has its own mini-bar.

The pimped-up three-seater ride comes with its own CD player, neon lights and drinks mixer - making it a quirky alternative to the party bus.

British firm Orchard Mobility are celebrating this week after the bizarre vehicle entered the Guinness Book of Records as the world's longest mobility scooter.

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

To comply with regulations, they had to drive the Limobilizer 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 Limobilizer 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.
