Sweden’s best (stupidest?) car designs ready to hit the streets

Sweden's best (stupidest?) car designs ready to hit the streets
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to see a toilet chased by a bicycle rolling down the street? Or how about a Wall-E robot that flies by? A rolling sauna? A flying dragon? If so, you need to head to Münchenbryggeriet, Södermalm on August 21st to see all the live action at this year’s craziest non-car race, Red Bulls Lådbils rally.

Check out what car designs you might see flying past the purpose-built obstacle course. Will they manage to cross the finish line or get stuck in a haystack crash somewhere on the course? Nobody knows!

What happens when three engineers and one mechanic join forces? Well, a rolling toilet it seems… Meet the “Pruttmuggebil” followed by Captain Filling on a bicycle.

If you don’t have the knowledge, use courage instead, at least that’s what this squad of optimistic but not very technically advanced farmers from Uppsala will do to impress the crowd and smoke their competitors. And if their car design tells us anything, it’s that there is no shortage of imagination or creativity in this group.

Team “PH1” (aka Rolling Sauna)

Would it really be a Swedish soapbox race without a sauna? Of course not. This design hails from the deep dark woods of Norrland, where a bunch of speed geek engineers are on a mission to get everything rolling. Even a sauna.

Ever seen the “Ockelbo 300”? We’ve heard rumors that it’s a one-off, somewhat sketchy, non-motorized racer that has nothing to do with Skidoos and everything to do with Lådbilsrally.

Will this be Thomas the Train’s first (and last) journey?

Four sweaty engineers studying road and hydraulic engineering. Surely that sounds like a winning concept? Turns out that’s not the case at all: “We don’t have any experience building roads, much less an idea how to build a soapbox racer…” Will Thomas the train survive the journey? We sure hope so!

Team FeRorri makes the dreams of all children come true with a “real” Rorri

What brings Team Moget to the streets? We can’t wait to find out

© Jakob Norrman

A Peter Pan clan of kids trapped in adult bodies that never take anything too seriously. “We always think about the stupidest thing we can do in a given situation, then we do it, then we laugh and end it all with an ironic ‘Moget!’

It is possible that they too will one day grow up to be responsible adults, but that day is still a long way off, according to them. What do they bring to Lådbillsrally other than bad humor and great vibes? We can’t wait to find out.

Team Mooners goes to the moon

Don’t be fooled by their name, this has nothing to do with mooning and anything to do with the moon. Spaceship Deluxe? Next big moon landing? We’ll know on August 21.

From Flügtag to Lådbilsrally, Team Gävlebock is at your service

The iconic crew – who is not from Gävle – took to the skies during Red Bull Flügtag 2021. Back and eager to please, the crew is once again ready to embarrass themselves in front of a crowd from Stockholm. Can they beat their record for shortest flight ever at Flügtag with the shortest ride ever over the Lådbilsrally obstacle course?

WALL-E will melt hearts as you whiz down the obstacle course
