The BADD Ford GT built by Performance Power Racing – with the help of its two whirlygigs hanging out back and a fancy new metal called "Pandalloy" – set two records last week at Florida's Kennedy Space Center. From a standstill, the twin-turbo powerhouse got up to 283.232 miles per hour in just 5,280 feet, as measured by Tag Heuer timekeeping.

That meant a new record in the standing mile as well as a Guinness World Record for top speed in a street-legal car. And that means the engineers in Molsheim, home to Bugatti, just might spend this evening getting to work on something even faster.

Check out a video of the PPR GT at work below.
