This Lawnmower Tops Out At 130mph

130mph-lawnmower

What’s one of the perks of being Honda, a multi billion dollar global corporation? That it can make vehicles like the one above at whim. They took the body of one of their HF2620 Lawn Tractors and stuffed it with the 1000cc engine from a VTR Firestorm motorcycle. Add in a few mods for suspension and wheels and whatnot, and you’ve got yourself a 109bhp lawnmower that’s capable (theoretically) to top out at 130mph. In testing they’ve pushed it up to 100mph, though we’re assured it can do better. The best part? It still cuts grass, thanks to two electric motors.

Wanna see The Stig take it for a spin? We have that video, along with another promotional one featuring British touring champion Gordon ‘Flash’ Shedden, after the jump.
