A bullet train made by the company JR Central, is able to move so fast with 366 miles per hour—the fastest train speed ever recorded.

Company officials say the train can go even faster, and predict it could hit 372 mph during another test next week. It should eventually be used for a new line that will connect Tokyo and Nagoya, with trains routinely traveling as fast as 313 mph, cutting travel time to 40 minutes, according to Vox report.

The Japanese train is able to travel so fast partly because it hovers over the tracks, with powerful magnets lifting it and cutting down on friction.
