Skoda Has A World Record....I Doubt You Will Guess It

World records are glorious achievements and don’t forget the bragging rights that come along with it. But, what about the ones that are completely ludicrous that no one hears about and one can wonder why do they even exist, here are some of them...

Most numbers of straws that can be fitted in a mouth by a person...

Most concrete blocks broken while holding a raw egg...

Most number of spoons on a face...

Catching an arrow in flight.......wait a minute, Skoda now owns that record.

It just couldn’t be left alone that BMW used the M2 Competition to break 2 Human world records (never had heard of the records before BMW owned it), I think the people at Skoda now decided that they should also own Human world records...

Now the Skoda Octavia vRS 245 owns the record for catching an arrow in flight. How did they do it? Let me tell you. To do this they needed the car, an Austrian Olympic Team Archer, a highly trained martial artist and a driver (I am guessing company test driver).

They did this with a rolling start at 134 mph, the test driver got the car to that speed, the martial artist - Markus Haas, stands up in the car with his upper body out through the cars panoramic/sunroof roof. As this trio (car included) neared the Archer - Laurence Baldauff (she has a gold medal for Women’s World Archery Field Championship), Baldauff, shot the arrow at the target set at 230 ft. With 0.5 to a 1 second for Haas to react, he caught the arrow mid-flight at 188 ft, claiming the world record.

This record weirdly makes sense for Skoda to have

An official from Guinness Book of World Records was present at the event to witness it and upon completion, awarded the plaque. I hope Skoda doesn’t go after more human records. This I could say okay to this one, even though I wouldn’t want to because they have an arrow in their logo and this being an arrow world record (since they are not claiming any speed records), this weirdly makes sense for them to have it.

Hopefully, car companies stick to records related to motoring. If they go after human records...it will be the rise of the machines (One of my fears coming to life).

Before I forget, you can watch a video of it below...
