Despite living in a time where world records seem to fall by the wayside faster than a New York minute, people still try to make their mark on history, working as hard as they can to be called world-record holders. This time, it was Performance Power Racing that tried to enter the record books for the world’s fastest car in the standing mile. After a series of trial runs - and some bumps and bruises along the way, Performance Power Racing finally broke through with their 1,400 horsepower Ford GT, which posted a top speed of 253.97 mph.

Congratulations to PPR for a job well done!

Well this is one of Ford’s ace to be one of the biggest producers of Supercars like this GT.

@Jared, well, the GT-R is a powerful engine and a few more tuning and set up can make it produce more horsepower than that. Since it has beaten a few good brands like Porsche in the Nurbugring circuit, I’m quite confident that it has a big chance to beat this GT as well. Or at least com close to it’s performance.

That was an awesome engine! But lately this morning when reading some articles around here, I saw a Skyline GT-R, it has power pack of 1500Horses under the hood. I’m just wondering if that said GT-R can exceed the speed of the ford GT.
