Add another accolade to Tanner Foust’s accomplishments: He is the driver of the world’s fastest street legal minivan.
The Drivers Inc. wheelman set the record working with Optima Batteries, racing at speeds that any soccer mom or dad would have been proud of. As Optima described on its web site:
OPTIMA® Batteries, a leading brand of Clarios, set the record of the Fastest Street-Legal Minivan. Recent OPTIMA PowerPro Ambassador addition Tanner Foust drove a Mercedes Benz R63 AMG, powered by an OPTIMA Batteries YELLOWTOP H6, for a 1-mile stretch to the title of the Fastest Street-Legal Minivan on August 7th. Foust drove the minivan to a record speed of 165.5mph. Weistec Engineering helped to engineer the street-legal minivan, which included their Stage 2 M156 Supercharger, producing 700 horsepower.
