Video: World’s Fastest Standing-Mile Street Car, Faster than a Fighter Jet!

The Performance Power Racing Ford GT is fast, real fast. In fact, it is the fastest standing mile-street car on the globe.

One recently bared its soul at a NASA Shuttle Landing Facility Runway and from a dead stop reached 280 miles per hour in a one-mile stretch. Its speed from a stop was so fast that it outran a fighter jet that took off at the same time. The GT was driven/piloted by the Performance Power Racing lead design tech Matt Lundy.

Many industry observers believe that it is just a matter of time until the 300 mile per hour mark will finally be captured as Roger Bannister finally caught the four-minute mile on that overcast English day on 6 May 1954 at Oxford University’s Iffley Road Track.
