Top Gear Track-Tor

If you’ve ever been stuck behind one on a country road, you know that tractors can be painfully slow vehicles. As it turns out, Matt LeBlanc (yes, that Matt LeBlanc) has a solution for that very issue: make them go faster. He’s done just that with his Top Gear Track-Tor.

A lot of modifications have gone into this vehicle to turn it into the beast you see before you. For instance, a Chevy 5.7-liter V8 was dropped into it, giving it an absurdly high 500-horsepower rating. To cope with that speed, it was also equipped with a massive spoiler on the tail, as well as a fresh coat of Lamborghini orange paint. Turns out, the mods were enough to make this the new Guinness World Record holder for the fastest tractor in the world – officially clocking in at 87.2 mph (more than 6 mph over the previous record). It’s safe to say, this is one piece of farming equipment we wouldn’t complain about being behind.
