minoff Starting a 1905 Darracq 200hp Record car is a process. But the reward is brilliant. What a beast! And that noise! #darracq #landspeedrecord #hoonigan #loud #firebreather #noisemaker #retromobile #retromobile2016 5d

swassociates The TOP 1 Ack Attack is a specially constructed land-speed record streamliner motorcycle that, as of March 2013, has held the record for world's fastest motorcycle since recording a two-way average speed of 605.697 km/h (376.363 mph) on September 25, 2010 in the Cook Motorsports Top Speed Shootout at Bonneville Speedway, Utah. The Ack Attack's fastest one-way speed was officially recorded at 634.217 km/h (394.084 mph). This was the third time in four years the Ack Attack had broken the motorcycle land-speed record.

The record was confirmed and certified by the Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM), which is the world's leading regulatory authority for motorsports racing. The Ack Attack's record was included in the 2012 Guinness World Records.

Designed and built from the ground up by Mike Akatiff, the Ack Attack's bullet-shaped chassis is made from chromoly tubing. The motorcycle streamliner is powered by two 1,299 cc (79.3 cu in) Suzuki Hayabusa engines, using a single Garrett turbocharger, intercooled with dry ice at 35 pounds per square inch (240 kPa) boost, which produce more than 900 horsepower, and runs on Mickey Thompson tires. While pursuing the land-speed record, the Ack Attack experienced a number of failed attempts, including runs which ended in spectacular crashes.
