Honda races to build speedy lawnmower for Top Gear team

(This story was originally published on the BBC website)

Honda engineers are racing to build the world's fastest lawnmower after being put up to the task by Top Gear Magazine.

They are targeting a speed of 130mph (210km/hr). That would easily beat the current record of 96.5mph claimed by the fuel additive firm, Gold Eagle.

A first look at the machine - showing flames coming out of its exhaust - has been posted online.

Honda said it had taken on the project to promote its "sporty credentials".

Watch the video here... see if you can spot the flames coming out of the exhaust!!
