The Challenger 1 was a land-speed-record car built in 1959, powered by four supercharged Pontiac engines. On the morning of September 9th 1960, Mickey Thomson, at the wheel of the Challenger 1 broke the world land speed record, reaching a speed of 406.6mp/h (654.4kmp/h). Today, the car is displayed at the NHRA Museum in Los Angeles, California.
