Driving At 462 MPH Looks Ludicrous From Any Angle

Most of us will never know what it's like to be in the cockpit of a vehicle driving at 462 mph. But the team behind the Speed Demon have given us motoring mortals a tiny idea of what it might be like by recording a recent run with a collection of Replay XD1080 cameras mounted inside and outside the vehicle.

It's definitely one of those clips you'll want to switch to 1080P, go fullscreen, and turn up your speakers if you got 'em. The sound of the motor screaming is like a symphony of horsepower, and the shots where the Speed Demon tears past the cameras on the salt flats will certainly make you wish your minivan was packing a little more oomph under the hood.

DISCUSSION

There was a demon that lived in the ground. They said whoever challenged him would die. Their controls would freeze up, their cars would buffet wildly, and they would disintegrate. The demon lived at four hundred and sixty two miles an hour, where the air could no longer move out of the way. He lived behind a barrier through which they said no man could ever pass. They called it the batshit barrier.
