Watch this 190-km/h Golf Cart Blow Away the World Record
16 Novembre 2014 - Autoblog
People strive to find a way to make just about anything fast. After all, there's a whole series dedicated to racing lawnmowers. Still, there's just something absurdly fun about watching a vehicle that shouldn't have much performance go rocketing down a drag strip – like this speedy golf cart.
A business called Plum Quick Motors is dedicated to pulling even more speed out of these usually dawdling little buggies. The company offers high-performance electric motors for golf carts, and to prove what these machines can do, Plum Quick launches them down the drag strip.
The business has been quite successful at making some seriously peppy buggies, too. In October 2013, one of Plum Quick's vehicles set a Guinness World Record as the world's fastest golf cart by reaching 166 km/h r at Darlington Dragway in South Carolina.
Of course, with any record there's always the drive to do more. At a recent return to Darlington, the company blasted through its old record by hitting over 190 km/h... with clubs strapped to the back, no less.
