Stupidly fast Japanese train breaks own 366mph world record after 7 days

That's one badass train...

It’s the Usain Bolt of the train world.

And boy can Japan’s maglev train move.

Last week we told you how this bullet on wheels (well actually it levitates using magnets) absolute sh*t all over the world record by hitting a top speed of 366mph.

Well, now this Oriental speedster has returned to rub our noses in it by clocking a top whack of 373mph.

That makes Britain’s Virgin Trains look like Thomas the bloody Tank.

The seven-car maglev train (which looks and travels more like a missile) works by electromagnetic propulsion and hovers 10cm above the track.

Just watch this video…
