Honda and Top Gear are collaborating to create the fastest lawnmower… [JC voice] in the world.

The lawnmower is powered by a 110 bhp (82 kW) engine and will be able to reach 60 mph (96 km/h) in just four seconds, on its way to an impressive top speed of 130 mph (209 km/h). This is what Honda, Top Gear and Team Dynamics are working on as an attempt to take down the record for the world's fastest lawnmower currently held by Bobby Cleveland who hit 96.529 mph (155.35 km/h) in September 2010 at Bonneville Salt Flats.

The project originally began with a Honda HF2620 mower but during development it received a go-kart back axle, sports wheels and tires from a racing quad, 1000cc engine sourced from a Honda VTR1000F bike and the steering rack of a Morris Minor. The body panels and pedals are the only original parts left, while the blades were removed.

Top Gear says the project will be completed by June 17 so next week we'll get a closer look at the finished product.
