A STREAMLINER motorcycle has set an unofficial new land speed record of 376.363mph, beating the existing record by just under 10mph.

The new record, set by Rocky Robinson in Ack Attack Streamliner, was set at the Top Speed Shootout at the Bonneville Salt Flats on September 25, 2010.

Robinson recorded a run of 376.363 mph, bettering Chris Carr's previous record of 367.382. Read Visordown's full story on the BUB Streamliner.

The team say the streamlined machine exited the 11-mile course travelling at 394 mph, so 400mph can't be far off.

WTF must that feel like - I'm off to bed now, see if I can crack the 400mph barrier.... Can't be too hard though as I've won the last 3 Moto GP's, a BSB round and still managed to give Britney Spears one, all before finally nodding off. Dread to think what a cheese supper would induce.

And most importantly, what brand of engine is this "motorcycle" using ???

 It's a 3000cc V Four turbocharged 16 valve liquid cooled.

MF
Ack Attack uses a pair of toothed-belt-connected Hyabusa motors running a massive turbo. The team claim around 900bhp but I can't see it fitting on a Dynojet rolling road...
