Aaron Paul may have starred in the hit show "Breaking Bad," but nowadays, he's breaking racetrack  records! The "Need for Speed" star stopped by BBC's car show, "Top Gear," on Sunday, and he did more than your usual sit-down interview.

For the show's "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car" segment, the 34-year-old zipped around a track behind the wheel of a red, Vauxhall Astra. The actor does incredibly well navigating the course, despite a scary moment midway through his drive when he broke too hard heading into a turn.

The star clocked a 1:44:7 time, topping the celebrity leaderboard and beating the previous winning time of 1:45:1 held by AC/DC's Brian Johnson. He also beat out English singer-songwriters James Blunt and Joss Stone!

The show's host revealed, "That's the best we've ever had! Number one ... Good man. That's the fastest man ever to take the Astra around the track."

And the ecstatic star hugged the host,  replying, "That's fantastic. ... Oh, wow! That's amazing."
