The British-designed ThrustSSC is touted as the world’s first supersonic land vehicle. Propelled by twin Rolls-Royce Spey jet engines, it managed to hit a staggering 763.035mph, driven by Andy Green. The engines developed approximately 223 kN of thrust and got 0.04mpg.
The Dodge Tomahawk, powered by a Dodge Viper V10 engine that produces 500bhp / 525 lb-ft torque, is claimed to be the world’s fastest motorcycle, rocketing from 0-60mph in just 2.5-seconds. It has an estimated top speed of 300mph. To maintain traction, the bike has two custom made Dunlop P120/60R-20 tires up front and two P150/50R-20 in the rear.
