Toyota drives its 2,000-hp Land Cruiser to world speed record

Standard

ith recently retired Toyota NASCAR driver Carl Edwards behind the wheel, the Land Speed Cruiser clocked an official one-way time of 230.02 mph (370.2 km/h) on a 2.5-mile (4-km) runway at California’s Mojave Air and Space Port. That speed blows well past the previous SUV world record claim of 211 mph (340 km/h), crowning the Land Speed Cruiser the speed king of SUVs – and given its top speed is faster than many six- and seven-figure supercars, that’s no dubious honor.
