Mr Costermans topped 308.78km/h (192 mph) while driving a Lamborghini Gallardo supercar at Istres, near Marseille, in southern France. Mr Costermans thanked his co-pilot Guillaume Roman, saying: "I'm very, very happy. It's a team effort." Mr Costermans took the record from Briton Mike Newman, whose BMW M5 reached 268km/h three years ago.
