Watch Honda Mean Mower V2 Hit 100 Mph In 6.29 Seconds, Top Out At 150 Mph

Watch Honda Mean Mower V2 hit 100 mph in 6.29 seconds, top out at 150 mph

There is no stopping Honda and its extreme lawn mower division. Well, maybe it's not a whole division, but it did take a bit of work to accomplish this latest feat. The Honda Mean Mower V2 is now the official Guinness World Record holder for the fastest lawn mower to 100 mph. Honda managed to scoot to the century mark in just 6.29 seconds, which is beyond scary fast for a lawn mower.

Despite technically being able to cut grass, there isn't much about this vehicle that is lawn mower-like. Jess Hawkins (stunt driver and racer) piloted the machine to the record time, and she also managed to hit a top speed of 150.99 mph. It uses the 999cc four-cylinder engine out of the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP motorcycle and only weighs 309 pounds. At that minimal weight and 200 horsepower, it's obvious why this thing rips. For some perspective, that power to weight ratio is better than the Bugatti Chiron.

Watch A Heavily-Modified, 2,000-HP Nissan Qashqai Hit 237 MPHLast summer, Toyota flexed its muscles by lettings its tuned, 2,000-hp Land Speed Cruiser loose in a straight line. Despite being as big as a boat, the SUV managed to get up to 230 mph. Earlier this month, Severn Valley Motorsport threw its hat into the ridiculously fast SUV ring with its 2,000-hp Nissan Qashqai (better known as the Rogue Sport in the U.S.) and set a new record. Now, you can watch it in action.
