Honda’s record breaking “Mean Mower” can go 150 mph

US and World

(CNN) — A Honda lawnmower broke a world record last month, but it’s not going to help you cut your grass any faster. The Mean Mower V-2 is the new acceleration king going from zero to 100 miles per hour (ca. 161 km/h) in just over six seconds.
 
Even though the mean mower has to have grass cutting capabilities to qualify, it isn’t commercially available. Plus, it did not set the record while actually cutting a lawn.


It happened at a race track in Germany. The mower was not driven by your neighbor, either. Professional Stunt Driver Jess Hawkins was behind the wheel for the record run. The newest iteration of the mean mower is powered by an engine used in one of Honda’s race motorcycles.

According to Honda, the mower can reach 151 miles per hour.
