Jessica Hawkins in Honda Mean Mower Advert

Honda UK has teamed up with 23-year-old stunt driver Jessica Hawkins for a new ad campaign, promoting the brand’s new Mean Mower.

The brand has released a new teaser video, announcing that the Mean Mower is taking shape and inviting people to watch as the Mean Mower comes to life for the very first time with rising star Jess Hawkins behind the wheel.

Honda’s new Mean Mower, produced in association with Top Gear magazine and built by Honda’s British Touring Car Championship team, comes four years after Honda’s Mean Mower hit 116.57 mph (on March 8, 2014), taking the title of world’s fastest lawnmower. Described as “meaner”, “louder” and “faster”, this time, the mower is fireblade-powered, now having a four-cylinder model taken from a current CBR1000RR Fireblade, and boasts 189 horsepower.

Hawking, who’s been stunt driver in Fast and the Furious Live and has numerous karting and car racing successes, will drive the machine for the new world record attempt, but the date has not been yet set by Honda.
