Break the record for the fastest pushing a carNovember 15, 2020
Last month, someone named Jussi Kallioniemi was able to set a new Guinness record. He was able to push his Saab 97-X SUV a distance of one mile or 1.6 kilometers. It took him 13 minutes 26 seconds to complete this task.
The famous Guinness Book of Records now contains a new record from Finland. This is the fastest time to push a car one mile or 1.6 kilometers. The new record was set last month by Jussi Kallioniemi, and its main goal was to “raise awareness of important topics related to exercise and well-being and encourage people to try new things.”
Kallioniemi was able to push his 2006 Saab SUV in 13 minutes 26 seconds, thus improving the previous record by about two minutes.
The 47-year-old IT professional explains that the test was not a matter of “brute force” as he was looking for ways to optimize the vehicle’s rolling resistance, which made it easier for himself. For example, he used a set of Nokian tires with the lowest possible rolling resistance and adjusted the tire pressure evenly.
“Setting a world record gives me a boost of energy and pleasure. I feel like the last piece of the puzzle has fallen into place, ”says new record holder Jussi Kallioniemi. “People often tell me that I don’t look like a strong man – and I don’t. A normal middle-aged man can challenge the world record if he takes it all into account and tries to make the car move as easily as possible.
Jussi’s car is a Saab 97-X with a 5.3-liter V8 powered by biogas. It has an odometer of over 211,000 kilometers and is best known by its nickname “Röhkö”, inspired by the “groan it makes at launch.”
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that for the 112-year-old Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost they raised a record amount. A unique copy of the Rolls-Royce 40/50 HP car was bought from the German Volkswagen by an American collector, whose name is kept secret.
