Yes, a lawnmower. With the help from Team Dynamics - a British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) squad - the HF2620 Lawn Tractor was transformed into a 109bhp machine that is capable of reaching 100km/h in around four seconds.

Modifications include a newly fabricated chassis from chromoly steel, a 1.0-litre engine from a Honda VTR Firestorm motorcycle, and a six-speed sequential gearbox. Jump to the video to catch the record-breaking attempt.

    Construction on Jurong Region Line to start next year

    Construction works for five stations on the new Jurong Region Line (JRL) are expected to start next year and slated for completion in 2026. The five stations are Choa Chu Kang, Choa Chu Kang West, Tengah, Hong Kah and Corporation, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said yesterday. The authority has awarded two contracts worth $739.5 million to construct the five MRT stations. The stations will form part of JRL, Singapore's seventh MRT line, which is set to open in three stages from 2026. Comprising 24 stations, the line was announced last year to improve connectivity in the Jurong area, with the aim of boosting the area's transformation into a second Central Business District.
