According to Ron Main, one of the Speed Demon's designers, the single-seater car road rocket, which features a chrome moly steel chassis and composite body, reached a top speed of 353.414mph on Bonneville salt flats, Utah, earlier this year. The car is turning heads at this week's SEMA 2007 show, where it has just won the Mattel Best Representation of Speed award.
