Automobile Records


Nissan has set the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the fastest drift using the specially tuned MY16 Nissan GT-R NISMO by entering a drift at a speed of 304.96 km/hr. Masato Kawabata, the Japanese drift champion and title holder for the D1 Grand Prix series, set the new world record to clinch the top spot from former record holder Jakub Przygo?ski of Poland.

1)The official land-speed record (measured over one mile) is 1,227.985 km/h (763.035 mi/h) (Mach 1.020), set by Andy Green (UK) on 15 October 1997 in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada, USA, in Thrust SSC.



Although Thrust SSC is the first car to break the sound barrier, it is alleged that Budweiser Rocket Car, driven by Stan Barrett (US), reached a speed of 1,190.377 km/h (739.666 mi/h) at Edwards Air Force Base, California, USA, on 17 December 17 1979. However, the published speed of Mach 1.0106 was not officially sanctioned by the USAF, as the Digital Instrument Radar was not calibrated or certified. The radar information was not generated using the vehicle directly but by an operator aiming aiming a dish using a TV screen.

The car is powered by two Rolls-Royce Spey 202 jet engines which generate 222 kN (50,000 lb) of thrust,



2)A 1966 Volvo P-1800S owned by Irvin Gordon of East Patchogue, New York, USA, had covered in excess of 4,586,630 km (2,850,000 miles) by December 2010. The car is still driven on a daily basis and covers over 160,000 km (100,000 miles) per year, thanks in part to being driven to numerous car shows and events in Europe and the USA.

3)A Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport World
Record Edition - the fastest road legal
production car reaching 431 km/h

4)A 1954 Mercedes-Benz race car
sold for a record $30 million at an auction in
England on July 12, 2013. While collectible
cars have been sold privately for more, this
is the highest price ever paid for a car at a
public auction. The record was previously
held by a 1957 Ferrari Testa Rossa
Prototype which sold at an auction in
California in 2011 for $16.4 million. The
Mercedes W196R Formula 1 race car,
powered by a 2.5-litre 8-cylinder engine,
was one of a group of race cars that won 9
World Championship-qualifying Grand Prix
races in 1954 and '55.

5)The project is based on car Porsche 997.
GT9-R - now the fastest supercar in the
world! SSC broke the record at 1 mile
per hour. 20 cars, GT9-R is available
with three power outputs from 750 hp to
an incredible 1120 hp The machines are
designed not only for the straight-line
sprints, but for piloting at the complex
routes, such as the Nurburgring.

6)A team from Edmunds.com drove a Tesla
Model S from the Los Angeles metro area to
New York City in 67 hours, 21 minutes, beating
Tesla’s own cross-country mark for electric
cars of 76 hours, 5 minutes, set earlier this
year.
The average speed over the 3,331.9-mile trip
was 49.5 mph, handicapped by the need to
balance speed with efficiency in order to
maximize the range of the vehicle’s 265-mile
battery pack, and 23 stops at Tesla’s high-
speed charging stations that dictated the
long, indirect route, where it was stationary
for a total of 14 hours, 40 minutes.

US car sales in 2015 jumped to a record, clearing a peak last reached 15 years ago as cheap gasoline, employment gains and low interest rates spurred Americans to snap up new vehicles.

In all, auto makers sold 17.5 million cars and light trucks in the U.S. last year, a 5.7% increase, and on average paid more for each one. Americans overall spent about $570 billion on new rides—fueling an industry revival that is putting more money in the pockets of auto workers, dealers and executives..

The new peak raises the question of whether the good times can last. Ever since the Model T remade the U.S. industrial landscape, car makers have had to grapple with inevitable downturns following periods of significant sales gains. Signs of an industry sea change are cropping up with self-driving cars and car-hailing services threatening Henry Ford’s vision of putting a car in every garage.
