A mannequin manufacturer in Lincolnshire, UK, is inviting people to participate in a bizarre challenge involving their car, headless torsos, and body bags.

For £50 (R1 034), you can take part in a "drive-through heist" where you are challenged to stuff as many fibreglass body parts in your car in just 15 minutes.

The brains behind this crazy concept is Roz Edwards, 49, who owns and operates Mannakin, a dummy hire company that provides figures for film and TV sets, including X-Factor and Top Gear.
