The Honda Mean Mower V2 is powered by a 189-horsepower engine out of a CBR1000RR Fireblade. It can top 150 mph. It can cut grass. And here it is at the Goodwood Festival of Speed hooning up a British aristocrat’s driveway like a bat out of hell.
This isn’t just some stunt, either. Wait – no. Let me rephrase that. This most definitely IS a stunt from Honda, but it really can mow your grass if you wanted it to. When my esteemed colleague Alanis King asked Honda what this thing was capable of, they said it could probably cut turf at up to 50 mph if you really wanted.
Which I do. As the old adage goes, if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing quickly.
Though that kind of makes me disappointed in this whole exercise. I mean, just look at it. Driving on pavement. Meanwhile, poor old Lord March’s lawn is looking a bit shaggy there. Could’ve at least done the guy a solid and gave his green stuff a bit of a trim on the way up.
Anyway, if you want to watch more of this Goodwood Good Stuff, make sure to heed this shameless plug and check out the Jalopnik Facebook page. We’ve got Goodwood streaming there all day.
