The the New York-to-Los Angeles Cannonball record has been broken yet again, according to former coast-to-coast record holder and insider Ed Bolian.

Bolian, claiming to have been in contact with the new record-holders, says the new record time is now less than 26 hours, but did no disclose an exact time in the above video published Thursday. That means the drivers would've had to average at least 108 mph over 2801 miles. Bolian says that through some states, the record-breaking team averaged over 120 mph.

Bolian didn't say which car was used to set the run, nor did he reveal who the driver or drivers were. The news comes just five weeks after a team utilized empty roads stemming from the coronavirus pandemic to set a record time of 26 hours 38 minutes behind the wheel of an Audi A8 equipped with aftermarket fuel tanks strapped to the interior.
