The 130 MPH Lawnmower [PHOTO+VIDEO]

Lawn Mower 130mph
Top Gear Magazine

“How do you achieve top speed and still have the ability to cut grass?” That was the question Honda UK wanted to answer for Top Gear Magazine so it set a team of engineers to task.

The result, when complete, will be quite amazing, too. How about a lawn mower that has the capability to travel, and effectively cut grass, at 130 mph?

Honda replaced the typical, boring, and slow lawnmower engine with a motorcycle engine. Now we’re getting somewhere. They also substituted the tires for the more high-performance type.

(Cue the Home Improvement  theme…)

Two new electric motors will power and spin the blades at about 4,000 rotations per minute to cut the grass and should be able to accelerate from 0-60mph in about four seconds!

Here’s hoping for a little thermal protection for the family jewels.

Top Gear Magazine said it had set a deadline of 17 June for the team to complete work on the machine.
