Honda Looks For New Ways To Break Lawnmower Land Speed

April 5, 2014

According to Albert Einstein, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Smart man he was, but I feel he neglected a key measure of insanity: The speed of one’s lawnmower. With the exception of Acura’s upcoming NSX, Honda hasn’t made a fast car in sometime. Perhaps that’s because it’s been focusing its efforts on building a lawnmower capable of claiming Guinness’ world record? Hitting 116.57 mph, Honda’s “Mean Mower” has officially become the world’s fastest lawnmower, besting the previous record by almost 30 mph – despite falling short of its 130 mph target.

Honda engineers are looking at new ways for Mean Mower to travel 130mph.
