Starting the 1909 Blitzen-Benz, UNEDITED, @ Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
The Blitzen-Benz was purpose built to do just one thing, to break speed
records (not racing), and it did repeatedly from 1909 through 1911.
(Edited version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga2HtUHzUuw )
Its speed of 228.1km/h (141.73mph) on April 23rd, 1911, driven by Bob
Burman at Daytona Beach, stood as a record until 1919. Twice the speed of
the fastest airplane, (12 April, 1911, Alfred Leblanc @
69.442mph/111.801kph in a Blériot Blériot) and even shattering the record
speed of 210km/h set by a locomotive in 1903.
This record was not even officially broken in an airplane until 1920!
Of the six originally built, this is one of only two that exist today, and
is displayed at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
While the extended and nuanced effort required to start the Blitzen-Benz on
a cool coastal morning can try the patience of some viewers, its historical
significance and ground-breaking engineering brilliance still place it
amongst the greatest motor-vehicle achievements of all time, and the dozens
witnessing this effort felt it was one of the highlights of many great
moments at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance 2011.
Here's a great collection of vintage and modern images of the Blitzen-Benz
and other historic speed record contenders:
displacement 21500 cc / 1312.0 in³

stroke 200 mm / 7.87 in
power 149.1 kw / 200 bhp @ 1600 rpm

Coming back from a photo shoot we took the liberty of doing a couple of Boost pulls. At one point the Supra
looses traction at about 70mph. With more than 800HP traction is the
biggest problem. The GT-R on the other hand equipped with a COBB Access
Port, HKS GT570 Kit &Legamax Exhaust
has low speed wheel spin of all 4 tires. Both cars professionally built and
tuned at Illtech Auto Salon in Tacoma WA.

Aventador vs High HP Supra
Update- Yes, its sad but true.. RIP Supra. A friend of the owner wrote me
and said the driver was ok but the car is totaled. (it happen a few weeks
after this video was shot) :(
New Update- the Aventador was sold to the rapper Tyga and he went off the
road and crashed. :(
So we were driving back from a exotic car meet/event, getting back on the
highway when we see a modified Supra and wanted to see if he would play
He did and he pulled on us every time... Both the Avy driver and I are HUGE
and love Supra's so we were happy to see what it could do. :)
2 of the WORLDS FASTEST NISSANS - 6.46 @ 222 mph SCOTT PORTER - VQ35 V6 TWIN TURBO

quick 6.46 @ 222 mph and took the win. This is the fastest Nissan powered
vehicle in the world and the R35 (on film) of Mark Jacobsen is the fastest
RB powered vehicle worldwide. Mark Jacobsen ran 6.63 @ 211 mph off camera
to also reset his own world record as seen in a previous DragImportMedia
