The British cyclist set a European speed record thanks to an aerodynamic shield mounted on a 550-horsepower crossover Porsche Cayenne

Crossover Porsche Cayenne Turbo helped British cyclist Neil Campbell set a European speed record. The video arrived in YouTube.

A special bike capable of maintaining structural integrity and stability at speeds up to 320 km / h was prepared by Moss Bikes. The device received a design of lightweight composite materials, and parts printed on a 3D printer. In addition, the developers have applied special wheels.

To establish a record, a special shield was also created, designed to dissect the airflow, creating an aerodynamic cocoon. The device was attached to the rear of the crossover Porsche Cayenne Turbo under the management of the British champion in drag racing Andy Frost.

First, the driver dispersed Campbell on the runway of the military airfield to 177 km per hour. Then the cyclist unhooked the car and continued to accelerate independently, accelerating to a record 240 km per hour.

Porsche Cayenne Turbo is equipped with a four-liter petrol twin-turbo V8 engine, developing 550 horsepower. The crossover is capable of dialing the first 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds, and its maximum speed is 285 km per hour.
