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 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.
