The previous record was 118.9 kilometers per hour (73.921 mph). It was owned by British engineer Edd China and his homemade ice cream van. Top Gear presenter Paddy McGuinness set a new record in a 1979 Bedford CF with a 1980s Land Rover 110 chassis and Tesla powertrain.

And in the spring of 2020, a speed record was set for riding a motorcycle on the rear wheel, sitting feet first – 175.418 kilometers per hour. The stunt was performed by stunt rider and stunt rider Johnny Davis, known by the nickname Stunter Jonny.

The absolute speed record among production cars is currently held by the American hypercar SSC Tuatara, which showed an average speed of 508.73 kilometers per hour. However, due to many doubts, it was decided to repeat the race publicly….
