The British engineers who've been developing the British Steam Car have unofficially broken the 127mph record set by Fred Marriott in his Stanley Steamer back in 1906. The Steam Car made two attempts over a measured mile: the first trial, it reached 136mph, while the next one reached 151mph, bringing about an average speed of 139.843mph.
The ruling agency, the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile, hasn't confirmed the record-breaking speeds, so it's still unofficial. If confirmed, the British Steam Car project, after a decade of work on the vehicle, will hold the land speed record for steam-powered vehicles. The Steam Car was driven by Charles Burnett III.
The British Steam Car, a project 10 years in the making, is no jet, but it does have its share of modern trappings, including carbon-fiber construction. The 3-ton, 25-foot-long vehicle has 12 boilers, and its steam gets superheated to 400 degrees Celsius before being injected into the turbine.
