With bullet trains fast becoming a popular method of travel, India is sparing no expense on their latest project. The train is to travel between Mumbai and Ahmedabad, a stretch of 315 miles that takes 7 hours currently with the fastest running train. The bullet train is expected to reduce that travel time to a meager 2 hours, traveling at 217 miles per hour.

The project is expected to be completed by 2018.
