NEW MOTOR VEHICLE RECORD.

The New York Times
July 21, 1900


Mr. Vanderbilt's Quick Run from Newport to Boston.

Special to The New York Times.

NEWPORT, R. I., July 20.—This morning, bright and early, W. K. Vanderbilt, Jr., left his cottage, Belvoir, for Boston in his French motor vehicle and after passing through Newport and the towns of Middletown and Portsmouth according to automobile law limits, went faster and made Boston in two hours and forty-seven minutes. This was done without pushing the machine to any great extent.

The return home by another route was made in less than three hours. The distance between Newport and Boston, where Mr. Vanderbilt stopped, was seventy-five miles. This breaks the motor vehicle record between the two cities.
