The folks at the BBC’s “Top Gear” have claimed a rather peculiar Guinness World Record: the Stig piloted a 500-horsepower tractor to claim the title of world’s fastest tractor.
The farming machine, called the Track-tor, clocked a top speed of 87.2 mph, which outdid the previous 80.7 mph record. Powering the track-tor is a 5.7-liter Chevrolet V8 engine, according to “Top Gear,” though it did not provide any other mechanical specifications. Aside from the Chevy V8 engine, the machine features four-wheel disc brakes, adjustable air suspension, and massive 54-inch tires.
The tractor’s exterior color is a Lamborghini-inspired orange, and its head and taillights come from an Ariel Atom. It’s the supercar of tractors. no doubt.
