Wanted: Experienced couch driver

All right ladies and gentlemen, here is an event destined for an American to conquer.

Sofa.com has built what they believe is the fastest road-going, street-legal couch in the world. There goal is to pilot this "sofa-racer" to a top speed that will obliterate the previously held world record, set in 1998, of 87 MPH.

Want to pilot this piece of daft human ingenuity? All you have to do is go to www.sofa.com and guess the amount of coinage pictured in the jar. Ten lucky winners will be invited to Northampton International Raceway (in the UK, mind you) for a weekend of driving events. The winner of these events will go on to drive the record breaking piece of furniture to a top speed of over 100 MPH, in front of thousands of crazed spectators.

We've already made our estimates, so do it for Autoblog and do it for America.
