Who drove the fastest car in television history?

We "raced" everything from the Fonz's motorcyle to The Fall Guy's pickup. See which character had the fastest wheels on television.

No action series was complete without a sweet ride. Heck, in the 1980s, shows were written around the automobiles. Even decades before that, cooler-than-cool spies and detectives were cruising in convertibles. Peter Gunn had his Plymouth, Maxwell Smart had his cute and zippy Sunbeam Tiger.

Perhaps it was one too many episodes of Wacky Races that compelled us, but we wanted to find out which character would win in a fictional race of all TV cars.

Now, we know what you're saying: "But, but, the Batmobile's top speed of 350mph was aided by an afterburner!" Yes, and? Besides, even without the rocket engaged, the Caped Crusader could hit 230mph, speedy enough to blow by KITT on a track.

Here is how the race went. On your marks, get set, go!
