The Ekanoo Racing team out of Bahrain are not content with having the quickest and fastest import machine in the world, they are now chasing the outright door car record - and overnight they have achieved the speed mark at 277.99mph.
Running a Proline Racing twin turbo V8 still with a pair of "baby" 94mm twins attached, the Ekanoo Racing Lexus fired down the quarter in 5.50 seconds at 277.99mph.
"We are now the fastest door car in the world. We went 5.50 at 447.39 KPH (277.99 mph). We are well on our way to achieving our ultimate goal of being the quickest along with the fastest car with doors. This was achieved in Pro Boost trim (94 mm turbos at 2550 lbs). I am so proud to say that we built this car in my shop here in The Kingdom of Bahrain," said the team.
