THERE IS A NEW RECORD FOR THE CANNONBALL RUN

That's right, folks, there's a new record for the Cannonball Run!

In 2013, two chaps named David Black and Ed Bolian set a time of 28 hours and 50 minutes to cross the United States, from New York to Los Angeles, with Dan Huang in as their spotter.

It was a Cannonball Run record that many thought would be impossible to beat – considering the route nowadays is inevitably populated with more traffic and traffic officers.

But, there is now a new sheriff in town. Well, three sheriff's, namely Arne Toman, Doug Tabbutt, and Spotter, Berkeley Chadwick. These guys, along with the help of a team of others dotted along the route also spotting, managed an astounding 27 hours and 25 minutes at an average speed of 103.1mph to travel 2825 miles in their 2015 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG.

The video below is an interview with the winners by the chaps at VINwiki, so press that play button to find out how they did it.
