Video: This is what a 426 mph run looks like when driving the Bonneville

426 Bonneville

Have any of you ever wondered what it’s like to travel at 426 mph on the ground? Well if you have, now you can catch a glimpse of what it’s like.

A man by the name of George Poteet got himself some seat time in a Bonneville Blown Fuel Streamliner, aka the Speed Demon at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Using a set of special RePlay XD cameras, Poteet recorded himself taking the Speed Demon to 426 mph in one mile.

The Speed Demon uses a 347 cu in V8 with a pair of Turbonetics “Demon” turbochargers to get up to that speed. The ending result is over 2,200 horsepower, more than twice of that of the Bugatti Veyron.

Check out the video that was filmed in HD with the Replay XD1080 after the jump.
