the one on the Bergrennen Reitnau hill climb in Switzerland that DIDN'T crash, and burn... the bathtub guy!

Highschool counselor: where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Me: driving uphill in a bathtub, with a rubber ducky, scrub brush, and shower head

“Is there a future in that?”
“It’ll get me on tv for sure!”


The man behind the motorized bathtub is Swiss engineer Hannes Roth, who created the eye-catching contraption by grafting a tub onto a go-kart chassis. To unlock its outrageous speed, he shoehorned a 600cc Yamaha R6 motorcycle engine into the basin, which punches out 120 horsepower.


  1. My son will graduate this weekend with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. His mother and I are so proud. Of course I'm interested in him doing something meaningful in this life, and so have sent him your post....

    1. I hope he makes a lot of money, has a lot of fun, and gets more job offers than he can respond to! Congrats!
