The Bloodhound Supersonic Car – the world’s fastest and most advanced racing car, is unveiled in London and tested at a desert venue in South Africa. This car is something between a formula one car, space rocket and supersonic jet.
The Bloodhound Supersonic Car was built by a team of aerodynamic experts, scientists and engineers. It took three years to build the car, which they intend to drive more than 1,000 mph.
Here are some of the car’s impressive capabilities – The Bloodhound has a grand total of 135,000 horsepower, which is equal to 180 times the power of a formula one car. It is faster than a bullet. This car has a Nammo hybrid rocket engines which have a Jaguar powered fuel pump lubricated by Castrol EDGE, Parker assisted airbrakes and a Eurojet EJ200 jet engine. Impressive, right!?!
The team will attempt to sniff out a new world land speed record. The current record belongs to Andy Green (with the Thrust SuperSonic Car, which hit 763 mph back in 1997). He is also gonna pilot the Bloodhound Supersonic Car in the Hakskeen Pan desert, South Africa.
