Watch a Golf Cart Hit 118MPH with a 12.24 Quarter-Mile

BOLD RIDE

Going 118 mph isn’t a big deal — unless you’re in a golf cart. Then you would own the world’s record.

That’s a title Plum Quick Motors holds for The Bandit, which set the mark at Darlington Dragway in Hartsville, South Carolina. And it’s the second time Plum Quick Motors has held the Guinness World Record.

Torque+Tread.com reports 90% of The Beast is stock. But it’s that other 10% where the magic lies.

The fastest golf cart is the ‘Bandit’ by Plum Quick Motors, which achieved a speed of 191.12 km/h (118.76 mph) when driven by Robby Steen (USA), according to Guinness.

The previous record was 14.183 seconds at 103.65 mph. The Beast did the quarter mile in 12.24 seconds.

Just for comparison’s sake, we checked out comparable quarter-mile times. The 2015 Stingray Convertible does the quarter-mile in 12.3 seconds at 118 mph. Dodge Challenger Hellcat does it in 11.2 seconds at 125 mph.

No word yet if Plum Quick is looking to break its own record – or if someone else will. Guinness created the category at Plum Quick’s behest but that’s probably not going to stop others from getting into the game.
