Fastest street legal car record video

A company in the USA has built a 1700bhp Ford GT, and smashed the World Land Speed Record for a street legal car – hitting 283.232mph over a standing mile at NASA’s Shuttle landing facility in Florida.

Performance Power Racing, a research and development company in Palm Beach, used a new high-strengh Aluminium alloy, called ‘Pandalloy’ during the build to lower weight.

The record attempt was observed and validated by Guinness. The video is below:
