Submitted by on October 17, 2013

Lambretta Record RacerCan you imagine the kind of courage it took to climb into this tiny metal cabin and travel at over 124mph (200km/h)? Enjoy this photo gallery of the Lambretta Record Racer, from 1951.

Piloted by a fearless GP Racing soul by the name of Romolo Ferri, the Record was built by scooter company Lambretta and reached a maximum speed of 201km/h (124.9mph). Enjoy these photos – our favourite being the sketched plan showing the position of the rider. Absolutely awesome stuff!
