An upturned modified car with wheels that serve as turntables has been developed by a team of Buckinghamshire engineers to create the world's biggest record player and the most mobile of mobile discos.
The Chevrolet Spark DJ car - which can be transformed from being legally roadworthy to a fully-functioning DJ booth in under 20 minutes - measures 3.6 metres in length and stands 1.6 metres high. Once converted into a DJ deck the motor powers two vinyl turntables, a CD deck and mixer.
Car-maker Chevrolet has created the unique DJ set up to mark the launch of its new Chevrolet Spark model. The mobile disco will be centre stage at a number of gigs by indie-band The Mystery Jets from Thursday, 8th April 2010. A public vote will determine where the locations of the gigs will be with options including an old mustard factory in Birmingham, a car park in Manchester and a ferry in Liverpool.Published 7 April 2010
