Really cool, if I ignore the possible danger for others, which I will

"Understating the requirements to set a new benchmark, RT writes, "setting a Cannonball record invariably involves breaking multiple traffic laws." It's better to tell the truth and say a committed Cannonball Run is just as comically illegal as it looked in the 1981 film. Bolian and Black set their record in a Mercedes-Benz CL 55 AMG, stopping 46 minutes for fill-ups along the way and averaging 98 miles per hour. Toman and crew rolled in a specially prepared 2015 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, stopping just 22 minutes for fuel and averaging 103 mph for 2,825 miles. And since that's an average, it's possible Toman and co-driver Tabutt might be able to quote Dan Gurney's comment made after the All-American Racer completed the 1972 Cannonball in a Ferrari Daytona: "At no time did we exceed 175 mph."
On the other hand, perhaps Toman and Tabutt did exceed 175 mph. Toman, who co-founded tuning shop AMS Performance, installed an Alpha 9 package on the all-wheel drive E63 to goose output to 700 horsepower at the wheels. The only exterior changes were cosmetic, with fancy carbon trim hidden behind silver vinyl tape, and more tape used to disguise the taillights.
The electronics involved come from the Special Warfare section of hauling ass. Radar and jamming capabilities included a built-in Net Radar detector, an Escort Max 360 radar detector, AL Priority laser jamming, and a ground-based version of an aircraft collision avoidance system that would flag airborne police patrols. Waze picked up police checkpoints, and a remote-controlled thermal scope on the roof picked up heat signatures from lurking police cars at night. Kill switches could extinguish brake and taillights. And then there were three GPS units, a police scanner, and a CB radio.
The crew had plenty of help from 18 lookouts along the way, too, some of whom came out in the middle of the night to scout the roads for authorities and hazards."
