BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR. THEN DRIVE IT HOME. The new world speed record for tractors was set by two companies specialised in Nordic conditions. Nokian Tyres and Valtra set the stunning new record in the snow and ice of Finnish Lapland. Behind the wheel was none other than four-time World Rally Champion Juha Kankkunen. The new record is 130.165 km/h (80.88 mph), which was set on the Vuojärvi road runway between Rovaniemi and Sodankylä. “I’ve done top speed tests with various cars before, but this was first time I tried with a tractor – and we set the world record immediately! The tyres and tractor performed great, even if the track conditions were rather challenging,” commented Juha Kankkunen after setting the record. The Guinness World Records organisation has set strict rules for setting world speed records. The speed was measured over a 50-metre timed stretch with a running start. The tractor had to be driven in both directions within an hour. The official world record time was the average of these two runs. 7 World’s most luxurious tractor Valtra has given luxury a new meaning. When the Unlimited Studio was set the task of transforming a brand new T Series tractor into something truly unbelievable, it exceeded all expectations. Showcased at the SIMA exhibition in Paris and already sold, this has to be the most luxurious tractor in the world. The stylish leather interior with metallic detailing would shock regular tractor drivers.
