He has been named the world's tallest man by the Guinness World Records and earned reputation for his 2.47 meters (8ft 1in) height, but there is something missing in his life: Sultan Kosen is looking for love.

"The only thing I want is to have a good life, to get married and to have a car," world's tallest man Sultan Kosen says.



He is now in London for the launch of 2010 edition of Guinness World Records.

Speaking to AA correspondent on the phone, Kosen complained about small cars and said he wanted to buy a car that he could fit in.



"But before that," Kosen says, "I want to get married and have a good life."

27-year-old Kosen, whose hands and feet have also been measured the world's biggest, said he suffered a lot from health problems because of his height which is due to the medical condition "gigantism".



Kosen is 10 centimeters taller than previous record holder Chinese Bao Xishun.

His father is also proud of his son. Abdulkadir Kosen, who lives in a village of southeastern province of Mardin, said he wants his son to live a healthy life.



"After that we want him to marry a girl who could be appropriate for him," father Kosen said.

As the world's tallest man, Sultan Kosen will travel the world within the scope of a Guinness tour covering 10 countries including United States, France, Spain and Portugal.



"Everybody in the world is curios about him and wants to see him," a Guinness official said.
