Video: You simply have to see the record breaking run by the world's fastest tractor

Ever wondered what the world's fastest tractor was? Then this is your lucky day

This is the latest entrant into the Guinness Book of Records and we don't think any bogstandard Massey Ferguson is going to be ebating it any time soon.

This is a Valtra T234, a 247bhp, six cylinder turbo diesel beast that is a step or two above the average Irish tractor.

To test its top speed they recruited four-time Rally World Champion Juha Kankkunen and sent him out onto a snow laden landing strip in Finland where he hit an incredible top speed of 130.165 kph (80.88mph).

That mark was enough to get the tractor the honour of the fastest tractor in the world.
