The £50,000 lawnmower has been designed by the Japanese carmaker's touring car partner, British engineers Team Dynamics, in collaboration with Top Gear magazine.

Loosely based on the Honda HF2620 ride-on, the MeanMower was stripped and re-built by Honda's British Touring Car experts at Team Dynamics, adding a spaceframe chassis, a 1000cc Honda VTR Firestorm motorbike engine, bespoke suspension and tyres from a racing ATV.

It really DOES cut grass too

But despite looking like the standard mower, the Honda now produces 109bhp and 71lb ft - making it theoretically capable of zero to 60mph in under four seconds (quicker than a Porsche 911), and a record-breaking top speed of around 130mph. And it still cuts grass.
