Idris Elba Breaks Land Speed Record + 5 More Times He Was Cooler Than James Bond

Idris Elba breaks historic 'Flying Mile' record in Bentley Continental GT Speed, on Pendine Sands, Wales (1)

Why just be James Bond when you can be cooler than him in real life? This week actor and DJ Idris Elba broke an 88-year-old UK land speed record in a supercharged Bentley. According to a news release from the luxury car maker, the Pacific Rim star broke the historic ‘Flying Mile’ UK land speed record set in 1927 by hitting a top speed of 180.361 mph. This broke the existing record of 174.8 mph set by Sir Malcolm Campbell nearly 90 years ago in his legendary Napier-Campbell Blue Bird.

This is just the latest example of Elba being cooler than your favorite British super spy. Here are a few more.
