How small is America? Someone drove across it in 32 hours.

I once had a car that slow as well. It would take me thirty two hours across New Zealand especially if it broke down along the way.

Thirty two hours across America? I wonder how much Red Bull they drank to ride that long without a break.

Total distance: 2,792 mi
Total time: 31 hours
Average speed: 90.06mph

Here is the car...

Alex Roy says he and co-driver Dave Maher accomplished a transcontinental run in a record-breaking 31 hours, 4 minutes last October.

The numbers, Roy says, can be verified by a combination of time-coded video, toll and gas receipts, GPS tracking, eyewitnesses and other empirical info.

All considered, Roy and Maher apparently bested not only an attempt made earlier this year by Richard Rawlings and Dennis Collins in a Ferrari 550, but also the famed "32:07" David Diem and Doug Turner clocked in a Ferrari 308 during the 1983 US Express run.
