Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

Welcome to Indian Autos Blog’s midnight story section. Can’t get sleep and feel too lazy to make that midnight snack? Well, we’ve got some nice stories for you to snack on. Starting with this.

Honda super lawnmover

This a lawnmower being developed by Honda and Team Dynamics (responsible for Honda’s tuning cars) and boy do we love the specifications. Power comes from a Honda VTR 1000cc bike engine. It produces a maximum power of 110bhp.

As a result, on paper, this mower can trim your lawns at speeds up to 130mph (208km/h) while accelerating from naught to 100km/h in just 4 seconds!

The 520bhp/tonne power-to-weight ratio from this mini monster puts a Bugatti Veyron to shame! However, the steering rack comes from a Morris Minor! Also there aren’t any seatbelts as such. Airbags are out of question.

The wheels come from a racing quad bike while the rear axle has been taken from a 250cc Go-Kart. The entire mower is made from a space-frame chassis with extensive use of fiberglass.

It doesn’t have any traditional metal blades to cut grass. Instead, you get two electric motors with some brake cable attached to them capable of spinning at 4,000rpm. Your kids will now volunteer for the gardening work every weekend.

With mowers like these, who needs Ferraris?
