The Bloodhound SSC Can Travel at 1000 mph
on 24 September 2015
After eight years of research and development, British engineers are ready to unveil the Bloodhound SSC: a supersonic car that was built with the sole purpose of breaking the current land-speed record of 763 mph. The Bloodhound carries the power of 180 F1 vehicles and was designed to reach a staggering 1000 mph in just 55 seconds. It’s basically a fighter jet with wheels instead of wings. The Bloodhound’s creators will showcase the supersonic car in east London for the next two days in hopes of inspiring younger generations to take up science and engineering.
