Performance Power Racing’s 1,700+ horsepower Ford GT recently clocked 283.232 mph at NASA’s Shuttle Landing Facility Runway, and set a new Guinness World Record for the Fastest Standing Mile-Street Car. That is a very cool title.

In a standing mile test the care takes off from standing still and covers a distance of one mile flat-out to try and set the fastest top speed at the other end of the mile. PPR’s GT uses a new high specific strength, high temperature tolerant, aluminum alloy branded Pandalloy for its high-performance parts, which is how they managed to get 1,700 hp out of that engine. They reckon this aerospace material can be used in normal cars as well to lower emissions and increase fuel economy.

“Automotive Racing is the perfect channel to introduce some of the new technologies we are working on in to the main stream market. The Pandalloy™ Aluminum Alloys Project through Performance Power Materials, Inc is very exciting. The multiple series of Aluminums are vastly outperforming what is on the market today and we are excited to see how far we can push the limits of performance, and more importantly efficiency to have a positive impact worldwide. We break records to prove that these systems and designs really do function and can be implemented on vehicles of all types.” said Johnny Bohmer, Owner of Performance Power Racing and driver of the car.
