The story of this particular one started 10 years ago, on August 19th, 2011, when it set a speed record. The humble Skoda was dubbed the Bonneville Special and after serious modifications, it went to the Bonneville salt flats in Utah and managed a 227.080 mph (365 km/h).

The Ford Mustang Mach-E Set a Guinness World Record for Efficiency

The Ford Mustang Mach-E Set a Guinness World Record for Efficiency

It seems the Ford Mustang Mach-E might be the end of Range Anxiety

Lately, the Ford Mustang Mach-E has been the most talked-about EV. It was initially met by mixed reactions as Ford not only slapped the Mustang name on it, previously belonging exclusively to the two-door pony car, but they also gave it many of the Mustang’s design elements, such as the front fascia and the tri-bar taillights. However, as it turns out, the Mach-E has one key redeeming feature, as it recently got into the Guinness world records book thanks to its efficiency.

Porsche Continues Its Ridiculous Record Streak With the Taycan

Porsche Continues Its Ridiculous Record Streak With the Taycan

At this point, should we start calling the Taycan the "record-killer"?

Porsche has been in the habit of setting records recently, and it’s added another one to its name. Unbroken and unsurpassed since 2013, the Guinness World Record title for the fastest indoor land speed record has sat on the shelf of Tanner Foust, who clocked in a record speed of 86 mph back in 2013. That record has now gone by the wayside, thanks to Porsche and professional racer Leh Keen. Driving a Taycan Turbo S, Keen hit a top speed of 102.6 mph, eviscerating the previous record by more than 16 mph. As if owning the Guinness World Record for longest drift by an electric car — 210 laps — wasn’t enough, the record-breaking Taycan has another one in the bag.

The SSC Tuatara Isn't 330-MPH Fast, But It Did Set a New Official Record

The SSC Tuatara Isn’t 330-MPH Fast, But It Did Set a New Official Record

Here’s to hoping that there’s no controversy with this run

The SSC Tuatara’s claim as the fastest production car in the world appears to finally have some legitimacy to it after the American hypercar clocked a record-setting, two-way average speed of 282.6 mph at the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds that’s located on the premises of the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The new attempt at the top speed record comes a few months after SSC came under heavy scrutiny for claiming that the Tuatara had reached a top speed of 331.1 mph. Inconsistencies with the videos that SSC released to the media led to people questioning the validity of SSC’s claims, to which the automaker responded by saying that it would attempt another record run. Well, that record run has happened, and unless SSC makes another monumental snafu in verifying the validity of this new record run, it does appear that the Tuatara hypercar is now the fastest production car in the world.
