[Video]: 2 men travel world in hot tub

Two engineers are bidding to set a new record by travelling more than 100mph in the world's fastest hot tub.


Phillip Weicker and Duncan Forster have spent the past six years transforming a 1969 Cadillac DeVille from a convertible car into a moving Jacuzzi, reports the Express.


Dubbed the 'Carpool DeVille', the pair are hoping to head to the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah next month which is famous for thrill-seekers driving jet-powered motors at over 600mph.


The car has a 7.7-litre V8 engine which is used to power the car and heat the hot tub to around 100ºF.


The Canadians have launched a Kickstarter campaign which has raised over $4,000 to date, but they need $10,000 in total to fund transport, towing vehicles, fuel, accommodation, safety gear and race fees for the event.


"Nobody's ever gone 100mph in an open-air self propelled hot tub while sitting neck deep in soothing warm water," said Weicker.


"We aim to correct that mistake of history this August."
