London, December 8 (ANI): A new lawnmower has been designed to ride at 130mph.

Honda technicians have pimped up a regular model with a 1,000cc superbike engine which beats a Bugatti Veyron in power-to-weight ratio, the Daily Star reported.

The lawnmower, which has won Top Gear's 'Thing of the Year' gong at their annual awards, can accelerate from 0-60mph in just four seconds.

Honda's spokesman, Ellie Ostinelli, said that the 'Mean Mower' brilliantly demonstrates the Japanese car giant's spirit of innovation and ability to create extraordinary pieces of engineering.

The lawnmower was custom-made in fiberglass to reduce weight while the grass bag houses the fuel tank, high capacity oil cooler and a secondary water cooling radiator. (ANI)
