A Japan Railway maglev train (magnetic levitation train) is an insanely fast Japanese bullet train. This train hit 603 kilometers per hour (374 miles per hour) on an experimental track in Yamanashi, setting a decisive new world record. The train broke its own record and we know that can spent 10.8 seconds traveling above 600 kilometers per hour, during which it covered 1.8 kilometers (1.1 miles).

This miracle of train work by using magnets to push the train away from the tracks and drive the train forward, so they float nearly 10 cm above special guideways, allowing for frictionless movement.
