SANTA POD, England, Sept. 7 (UPI) -- A British man said he broke the world record for fastest piece of furniture by taking his motorized dinner table up to 130 mph.

Perry Watkins, 47, said his Queen Anne-style dining table, dubbed the Fast Food, reached a top speed of 130 mph and averaged 113.8 mph during a pair of runs in Santa Pod, England, The Sun reported Tuesday.

Watkins, whose table was set for service during the runs, said he is hoping Guinness World Records will recognize his beating the previous record, which was set by a sofa traveling 92 mph in 2007.

The designer said his table runs on the engine of a 1994 Reliant Scimitar Sabre with a nitrous oxide booster kit.
