The Guinness World record for speed has been set on NASA’s Shuttle Landing Facility runway at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida by a custom Ford GT.
The modified street-legal Ford hit 283.232 mph (455.82 km/h) in a standing mile. The vehicle, created by Performance Power Racing features components made from an aerospace aluminum alloy called pandalloy. This specially developed aluminium is perfect for racing as it has lightweight, high strength and temperature resistant properties.
