Idris Elba breaks 'flying mile' speed record in Bentley

May 7, 2015 Idris Elba

Idris Elba is a badass! The Brit actor broke the 'flying mile' speed record while driving his Bentley in south Wales.

Flying mile refers to a car's speed between two points within one mile. Elba averaged 180.4 mph, beating out Sir Malcolm Campbell's 174.8 mph record achieved in 1927 with his Napier-Campbell Blue Bird race car.

"I'm absolutely elated to have broken the flying mile at Pendine Sands," the Avengers: Age of Ultron star said. "It's an honor to have taken on the challenge and to successfully follow in the footsteps of the illustrious Sir Malcolm Campbell."

Fans will be able to catch Elba's performace too as it was captured on film for his upcoming Discovery Channel series Idris Elba: No Limits.
