Mow Your Lawn At 116 MPH!
Built in the UK by Honda's British Touring Car Championship, the 'Mean Mower' demonstrated its speed at a racetrack in Tarragona, Spain. Top Gear writer Piers Ward beat the 2010 record of 96.5mph (155.3kph) made by a John Deere riding mower. To give the vehicle its rapid performance, Honda fitted it with a 1,000cc superbike engine. This gives it a greater power-to-weight ratio than a Bugatti Veyron and acceleration from 0-60mph in just four seconds.
