Think breaking the land speed record isn’t crazy enough?
Try doing it on ice.
A team of daredevils from Finland has broken the world ice-speed record, belting an Audi RS6 at 335.7km/h over the frozen waters of the Gulf of Bothnia.
As with all Guinness speed records, the time was averaged out over two runs, with the car permitted a flying start and ‘up to an hour’ to reach its top speed.
At the wheel of the Audi was reigning ice-speed record holder Janne Laitinen, who topped his old feat of 331.6km/h set in 2011 in the same car.
A unique 12 kilometre test-track was used for the stunt, which was designed to showcase the grip and performance of a Finnish winter tyre company.
