The world's fastest lift took off for the first time in Guangzhou, China, thanks to the work of Japanese technology firm Hitachi in the 1,739ft (530m) tall CTF Finance Centre.

At speeds of 1,200m a minute (72km/h, 45mph), the lift will open for service in 2018 and offers a super smooth ride with its heavy-duty drive system and highly reliable safety features.
