World NGV Speed Record in Texan’s Sights

| USA, Texas

HighMount Exploration and Production, a natural-gas-focused energy company based out of Houston, Texas, is aiming to demonstrate the full power of natural gas as a vehicle fuel as it prepares a 2007 SL600 Mercedes-Benz roadster for speed events in the US this year. Chicago-based tuning firm Speedriven says that after contesting a speed event in March the intention is to apply a natural gas conversion to the proven race technology with the intention of challenging the world speed record (364.6 k/hr) for natural gas passenger vehicles set by a converted Audi in 2009.
