Ford GT Sets a New Guinness World Record at 238mph in the Standing Mile [VIDEO]

Last month, Johnny Bohmer Owner of Performance Power Racing, piloted the street legal 1700+ horsepower twin-turbo Ford GT down NASA’s Shuttle Landing Facility Runway setting a new Guinness World Record at 283.232 mph in the Standing Mile.

“Automotive Racing is the perfect channel to introduce some of the new technologies we are working on in to the main stream market. The Pandalloy™ Aluminum Alloys Project through Performance Power Materials, Inc is very exciting. The multiple series of Aluminums are vastly outperforming what is on the market today and we are excited to see how far we can push the limits of performance, and more importantly efficiency to have a positive impact worldwide. We break records to prove that these systems and designs really do function and can be implemented on vehicles of all types.” said Johnny Bohmer.
