Ice Cream Van sets new Ice Cream Van World record

The man Edd China is likely best known for those who watch too much Discovery in the mid-morning. He was the mechanic on Wheeler Dealers with Mike Brewer and basically did all the graft on updating the busted cars brought into his garage by co-presenter (and slacker) Brewer. Anyways, since leaving the series he has become a serial Guinness record breaker in the automotive sector. Today the fat book of record breaking feats announced he has created the unthinkable, the totally pointless but unbelievably brilliant record breaking Worlds fastest Ice Cream van. The fastest electric ice cream van in fact which reached a top speed of 118.964 km/h (73.921 mph).
