Our friends at Motor Trend recently posted this video allowing us to witness firsthand a new world record for fastest trailer tow ever made.

To achieve this, the team at Diesel Power modified a GMC 2500 Heavy Duty with a 6.6-litre, 397 horsepower V8 diesel engine of to increase its power to a monstrous 1,500 horsepower, which was just enough to break the previous mark of 223 km/h (or 139 mph). Do we really need to tell you not to try this at home?
