Mills, who lost the bottom half of her left leg and crushed her pelvis after being hit by a police motorcycle in 1993, said she was “completely elated” after smashing the record in France.
The ex-wife of Beatles star Sir Paul McCartney reached an incredible 103.6mph, according to The Mirror.
Mills credited the record to her 11-year-old daughter Beatrice in an interview with Hello! Magazine.
“I feel completely elated. It was such an incredible thing to do,” Mills said.
Mills said Beatrice had given a heart-shaped pebble as a good luck charm.
“She found it on one holiday in Long Island and she gave it to me as a charm to keep me safe. I never go anywhere without it.
“I had a specially made downhill-skiing outfit which is so tight that when I first put it on, I literally could only wear olive oil underneath so I could actually move.
“I was then told I had to wear an Alpine ski suit under it, which I thought would be impossible. But I managed to get them both on.
“The only thing I squeezed into a pocket was my little pebble from Bea.”
Mills also issued what seemed like a thinly-veiled dig at her former husband Paul McCartney.
“It’s a rare man who can give you the same thrill that going down a mountain at more than 100mph can.”
Mills divorced McCartney in 2008.
