TopGear Lawnmower Land Speed Record

Kind of moto-related, since the engine's from a Honda VTR1000F Firestorm. Other than the body, not much lawnmower about it, but they did include two electric motors and blades so that it would technically cut grass. and could make it into the record books. Awesomeness, sheer awesomeness. I'm gonna build one of these someday, right after I finish my Hayabusa-powered golf cart...
