This is 52-year-old Mike Newman driving a Porsche at an average of 186 miles an hour. Why is this a new land speed record? Newman is blind.

Newman managed the feat at the bumpy Bruntingthorpe airstrip in the UK, CarScoops reports with the help of a spotter vehicle guiding him along straight.

Yep, this guy drove significantly faster than you probably will ever go, and he's blind.
