We didn't know a toilet could go that fast. 

Canadian stunt woman and former motocross champion Jolene Van Vugt broke a land speed record for the world's fastest motorized toilet at Sydney's Olympic Park on Wednesday, speeding up to 75 kilometers (46 miles) an hour, BBC News reported

The speedy contraption looks like a go-kart, but has a porcelain toilet instead of a driver’s seat.

“I flew into Australia yesterday and came out here to jump straight on the toilet,” the 31-year-old daredevil told Agence France Presse. Van Vugt was visiting Australia to perform at the Nitro Circus stunt show based on the hit MTV series, AFP reported. 

The previous world record holder for speediest toilet was Edd China, who hit 42 miles per hour in Milan on March 10, 2011. 

The stunt woman is no stranger to breaking records: she has the titles of being the first female to back flip a dirt bike and for the longest female back flip, the Daily Telegraph reported

"My craziest stunt was back flipping a dirt bike over the Grand Canyon,'' she told the Daily Telegraph. "We don't like to say no to anything. Expect fireworks.''
