Illustration for article titled VIDEO: 1,400 HP Ford GT Sets 252 MPH Standing Mile World Record

The Performance Power Racing Twin Turbo Ford GT accelerates from 203 to 253 MPH in 7.3 seconds, less time than it takes most cars to hit 60 MPH. Its 252.97 MPH standing mile is a new production car world record.

That 1,400 HP figure is at the rear wheel, not the crank, and is achieved with the aid of two turbocharges pumping 26 PSI into the 5.4-liter V8.

HOLY COW! OMG! GEEZ! UNBELIEVABLE!! I'm gone for two hours and look what I see upon return.

My body feels like there are 1400 fingers making me tingle all over. That is absolutely incredible and awesome, and I need more adjectives.
