Honda UK and racing partner Team Dynamics have been chasing that coveted "fastest lawn mower" Guinness World Record for years. Today they officially claimed the title, and I gotta admit the thing's pretty wild to watch.
Honda took their HF2620 Lawn Tractor, gave it a new chromoly chassis, a custom body, ATV wheels with bespoke suspension, and the 1000cc engine from a VTR Firestorm motorcycle. They call it the Mean Mower.
The original Saturn SL2s were paragons of virtue — inexpensive, fairly well-built, and decked in only the finest rustproof body panels. This may be the only time an owner has tested his SL2 by hauling a riding lawnmower in one.
This lawnmower is set to shatter the current land speed record for grass cutting contraptions next month. Its 100 MPH target speed is 25% faster than the current record.
