Guinness World Record

New world record of 208.6 mph set on the ice of the Gulf of Bothnia, Finland.

The newworld record for the fastest car on ice has been set by a Nokian Tyres AudiRS6, beating its previous record with an average speed of 208.6mph. Janne “Iceman”Laitinen piloted the RS6 on a 12 km ice track in the Gulf of Bothnia inOulu, Finland, with the car wearing Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8 studded tires,designed for driving on uneven ice and winter roads at high speeds. Nokian Tyreshave been making winter tires since 1934 and is the only tire manufacturer inthe world focusing on products for Nordic conditions.

Guinness required the vehicle to take a flying start before covering a one-kilometer distance in both directions. The world record was an average of these two runs. The RS6 reached a top speed of 211.27 mph on the natural ice wearing commercially available tires, a Guinness requirement.
