There is an even older speed record that has stood since 1967 and current contenders don't even come close to matching it. What is it?
Can I hazard a guess that it's something to do with motorcycles?
No unfortunately it is not a motorcycle record, this machine is a little bit faster.

Jet powered aircraft? (the SR71 Blackbird would have been setting records around that time).

If it's not the worlds fastest Indian, it's gotta be a X series jet plane.

Nope, can't get closer than a X series, almost bought a model a few years ago of the one I think holds the record but can't remember the designation
