Street-legal ’06 Ford GT is first car in full street trim to break the 250-mph Standing Mile; hits 283 mph and sets Guinness World Record.
Records are made to be broken and nobody knows that better than Johnny Bohmer, West Palm Beach, FL, who set the Guinness record as well as the IMRA (International Mile Racing Association) Street Legal Class record. That was on October 16, 2012 on the Space Shuttle runway at the Kennedy Space Center, Cocoa Beach, FL. This spring he plans on running his twin-turbo GT for the record again; this time the target is 300 mph!
NOTE: Special thanks to my Facebook friend Robert Brown for supplying the photo of the GT's rear with chute taken at a local show and some information about Johnny Bohmer’s BADD GT.
