207 Mph Rocket-Powered Bicycle whips Ferrari F430 in Drag Race
The Ferrari never had a chance, it was over before the smoke cleared.
Normally, if you’re they guy rolling in a red Ferrari 430, you expect to be the fastest thing on the street. You pretty much run the show, you know you’re the “BMOC,” “Head Honcho” or “The Big Cheese.” Usually, that’s the case. From stoplight-to-stoplight not much is gonna top your little Ferrari…except maybe for a dude with a rocket strapped to a Ten-Speed.
For background let me give you some stats on the Ferrari F430:
