Crewe's missile - the world's quickest Rolls Royce


The only clock you’ll be able to hear ticking in this Rolls Royce is the Big Ben, if you manage to stuff that into the car, that is. Say hello to the world’s quickest Rolls Royce. Propelled down the dragstrip by an angry 10-litre(!) Chevrolet V8 monster, this 1974 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow nails the quarter mile in 7.94 seconds, at a staggering 281 kph.

Prepared by WG Racing, this car is apparently two seconds faster that a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport timed on the quarter mile. In drag racing terms, that’s a century. Now, the world’s best car is also one of the fastest.

Here's a video of it tearing up the drag strip!
