The answer to the question in the headline is 15 mph (in this case), which is pretty damn fast, but if the lawn is good for the day, watch out, because the Honda Mean Mower has an estimated top speed of over 130 mph. Top Gear along with Honda and its British Touring Car Championship partner Team Dynamics have teamed up to create the fastest lawn mower ever. With a 1,000cc engine from a VTR Firestorm, the Mean Mower boasts 109 horsepower and a 0-60 time of just four seconds. Because let’s face it, the only way the smell of fresh cut grass can get any better is by adding 100 mph exhaust fumes to it.

Gear By on Aug 22, 2012
All of a sudden there’s more lawn mowing robots than there are kids mowing lawns. The latest AI grass cutter/lazy-kid-enabler is Honda’s Miimo. Just set up a boundary via wire and this little gizmo will cut 2-3mm of your grass throughout the week in random patterns, giving your grass a chance to grow all healthy like. The Miimo knows to stay away from rocks and dead opossums, and even returns to its charging station when it’s low on juice. The question is: Do you trust your lawn to the Miimo, LawnBott, or Tango E5? We already know the kid is out of the question.
