Flower of Scotland – How Fast Can You Go?

Flower Of Scotland

It’s built in Scotland by a team of French and Scottish engineers. It’s raced at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Nevada, and the guy responsible for its turbo system is from Texas. The Flower of Scotland is a true multinational project whose sole intention was to be the first car with a 1.0-liter engine to break the 300 mph barrier. Power comes from a Kawasaki ZX11 motorcycle engine with one big-ass Garrett turbo on it that can max out at about 35 lbs of boost generating around 400 hp. Not bad for a 1-liter mill. The streamliner runs aluminum front wheels and is only 21-inches wide meaning that this sucker must be a handful to drive. That didn’t stop this international team though from trying to break the record. Click through for the video to see how they did.

    Amazing that they could run this so fast in Nevada when the Bonniville Salt Flats are in Utah. Try proofreading and fact checking next time
