The maglev bullet train can travel up to 374 mph. At its fastest, the train covers a mile in 10 seconds. Able to carry just over 900 passengers per trip, it levitates above the tracks using electromagnets. The result? A super-fast and practically frictionless ride...that is slightly terrifying.

10. Fastest Water Speed

Ken Warby holds the record for water speed, at 275.97 knots (or 317.58 mph). He was in an unlimited-class jet-powered hydroplane Spirit of Australia on Blowering Dam Lake, New South Wales, Australia. Can't you just picture his face flapping in the wind now?

So what are you waiting for? STEP ON IT.

It's not a gum... It's not a mint... And it's not a bird or a plane, either. Ice Breakers Cool Blasts Chews are the totally new, insanely fast-acting breath freshener for the cheetah inside of you.
