Formula One driver David Coulthard has become the envy of New York's commuters, driving between New Jersey and Manhatten at over 190mph.
The Red Bull racer drove the length of the Lincoln Tunnel in under one minute, as part of a publicity stunt to highlight the Grand Prix of the Americas, which will be taking place in New Jersey in 2013.
After several days testing the track to ensure the cars could cope with the lumps and bumps in the urban road surface, Coulthard strapped himself in for the record-breaking tunnel drive at around 2.30am on August 15.
Speaking afterwards, he said: "It's a weird attack on your senses when you go fast and you've got sort of this closure of the tunnel leading to the point. I was disappointed we couldn't go faster!
"We managed to do 190mph, I think it would have been great if we could have gone a bit quicker, but to have the opportunity to drive a Formula 1 car from New Jersey to New York is totally unique. "
He added: "I don't suppose I'll get that chance again - don't suppose many people have really done that - so, yeah I think we were probably the fastest to have gone through there."
