For 23 years it held the UK speed record of 162.2mph, the project was abandoned after the APT-P's short service due to many technical problems. However various technical features of the train where used in the GEC Class 91 and technology was sold to Fiat and is used in Pendolino trains worldwide. The predecessor to the APT-P was the APT-E gas turbine locomotive.
