This is a video clip from Super Speeders 3 - On the Run. it shows 230+ mph testing of the SSC Ultimate Aero TT which went on to become the Guiness Book of Wolrd Records "fastest production car".

TGV world train speed record 3/4/2007 357mph English version
(English video version)
French TGV world speed record of 3rd April 2007 (574.8 kilometres per hour / 357 miles per hour).
(Previous official speed record for a train running on rails was 515.3 kmph, set in France in 1990; other unofficial records & maglev world record at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_speed_record_for_railed_vehicles )
The special train, called V150 (velocity 150 meters/second), is an enhanced version of trains that will run on the Paris-Strasbourg line from June 2007.
The V150 was made up of two normal cars that will run on the eastern TGV track and three double-decker carriages and can develop over 25,000 horsepower, twice that of a conventional TGV.
Record was set between Preny, near Metz in the east of France, and Bezannes near Reims.
