Toyota Sets The Record For The World's Fastest SUV

Toyota has set the record for the world's fastest SUV as a modified Land Cruiser hit speeds of 230 miles per hour (370km/h).

The turbocharged vehicle rocketed along a 2.5 mile (4km) California runway to beat the previous record of 211 miles per hour (340km/h).

Dubbed the 'Land Speed Cruiser' by the daredevil team, the SUV underwent a myriad of modifications to get it up to pace.

The custom-built, 2,000-horsepower Cruiser had two turbochargers added to its regular 381hp, 5.7L V8 engine to increase its power output five-fold.

Alongside several other engine modifications, the SUV had wider tires and reduced suspension to boost its top speed.

It took former NASCAR driver Carl Edwards just two attempts to break the SUV land speed record.

Modifications to the car's volleyball-sized turbochargers allowed the racer to add 19 miles per hour (30km/h) to his first attempt.
