This is Raminator, the fastest Monster Truck in the world with a top speed of 99.1mph [video]

Monster trucks are all about jumping over old cars, crushing them and entertaining the crowd. Some of these big trucks pack around 2,000 horsepower and despite riding on huge tyres can accelerate faster than some small cars.

There’s one thing that they are not built for, the top speed.

Raminator, a monster truck sponsored by the Ram Truck brand, has broken the Guinness World Records record for the “Fastest Speed for a Monster Truck” at the 3.4 mile Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas by hitting a top speed of 99.1 miles per hour.

The previous record was 96.8mph so the 100 miles per hour mark is almost corssed.

While Raminator clearly is not the fastest vehicle ever to lap the circuit in Austin, Texas, it is likely the biggest.

Hit play to see Raminator go scary fast on the circuit that is better known for hosting Formula 1, endurance racing, touring cars and motorbikes.
