  • Who needs the C8 when you can have a Honda lawnmower hitting 100 mph in 6 seconds.

    Credit: By Scottie Andrew and Saeed Ahmed, CNN

    The Japanese motor company's Mean Mower V2 reclaimed the Guinness World Record for fastest lawnmower, hitting 100 mph in 6 seconds.
    In addition to its speed, to earn the title the lawnmower still needed to look like one and, of course, be used to mow a lawn.

    British stunt driver Jessica Hawkins completed two runs, racing the mower in opposite directions within an hour, at a top speed of 110.5 mph at a German racetrack. Her acceleration from zero to 100 mph averaged just 6.29 seconds.
    The mower is outfitted with the same four-cylinder, 200-horsepower engine as Honda's Fireblade "superbike," hidden in the body of a tractor. It achieves a top speed of 150 mph, while the company's top-rated standard lawnmowers top out at 4 mph.
    The first Honda Mean Mower held the fastest lawnmower title in 2014, with a top speed of 116 mph, but was dethroned in 2015 by a Norwegian man who built and raced his own vehicle at 133 mph.

    I think I'd still opt for the C8. How's the mower do on the Interstate? Doesn't look like its got room for two golf bags. 4mph is plenty fast for me for mowing. I would't want to have to wear full racing gear and helmet just to cut my lawn. Maybe I'm being too literal with this. On the other hand building a lawnmower that can hit 150 mph is a remarkable human accomplishment.

        People race so many things. I had not considered lawn mowers like that before.

          Wonder how many acres per hour it will do?
          There is a madness to my method!
