What it feels like to drive over 700km/hr

We hate to be the ones to tell you this, but there’s a scant chance most of us will ever exceed 200 kilometres per hour here on planet Earth. Sure, you can hop in a commercial jet liner and easily best that figure in the comfort of coach, but its not quite the same as skimming along mere centimetres from the ground in an hurling ball of aluminum, glass and fury. Maybe that’s what makes the Speed Demon’s latest run on the salt so impressive. As you may recall, the team behind this particular Streamliner recently pulled off a standing mile of 686 km/h.

They recently headed back out to try their hand at another pass, and the result was a standing mile of 737.38 km/h with an exit speed of 744.07 km/h. This time, the crew strapped enough ReplayXD cameras to the Streamliner to catch every aspect of the high-speed run, and the finished video gives us a pretty good idea of what it’s like to clip along at ludicrous speed. Hit the jump to check it out for yourself.
