Do You Like Tractors? Fine! Matt LeBlanc, host of the TV cult show "Top Gear", too. Four tractors Matt calls his Own. Only Problem: Really fast you are not everyone and holding up the traffic. The solution: a Lot of power and plenty of speed. Came out of the "Track-Tor", a genuine world record vehicle.
As the Name suggests, is the "Track-Tor" no Executor of the rod. It is powered by a 5.7-Liter V8 from Chevrolet with over 500 HP, with the addition of 54-inch tires on the rear axle and an adjustable air suspension, in order to vary the ground clearance. Usually tractors have brakes only on the rear wheels, the "Track-Tor" which is on all four wheels. Each rear wheel can be individually braked. Is rounded off by the appearance of LED lamps from the Ariel Atom and a orange paint job in Lamborghini style. As vehicles of the "Top Gear" are always a little crazy, there are brush as an accessory with a rotating boot cleaning and spade holder.
But it is even more crazy, because of the "Track-Tor" has surpassed the 2015 established world record for the fastest tractor. In mid-February 2015 raced Ex-world rally champion Juha Kankkunen, with a 7.7-ton, and officially 250-horsepower Valtra T234 about a 2.3-kilometre-long Ice in Lapland. The result: 130,165 km/h. With the silent racing driver "The Stig" at the Wheel of the "Track-Tor" now, 140,334 km/h. Who would want to see the fast-paced horse in person, in the National Motor Museum in the UK Beaulieu the opportunity to do so. There is the "Track-Tor" in addition to other Highlights of the recent Top-Gear-story of how the "Ssangyacht" or the Taxis with high mileage. Also, the panel with the lap times of the prominent guests can be seen.(rh)
