2004 Mercedes-Benz CL55 AMG Crosses the U.S. in 28 Hours, 50 Minutes
A 2004 Mercedes-Benz CL55 AMG recently annihilated Alex Roy’s previous cross-country driving record of 31 hours and 4 minutes. The record was broken by Ed Bolian, a guy who teaches Sunday school with his wife … he also sells Lamborghinis. Helping Bolian break the law was his co-driver Dave Black, and Dan Huang, the passenger/navigator.
While the record has not been confirmed by a sanctioning body like Guinness, there are 218 pages of telemetric proof gathered by a GPS tracking company contracted by Bolian. Get that in the hands of authorities, and the legal troubles would mount quicker than a horny Chihuahua upon a bacon-grease-slathered ankle.
You can read about the Cannonball-style saga in-full on Jalopnik. Written by Doug DeMuro, the narrative is worthy of being converted into a screenplay.
