Bloodhound SSC: Smashing the land speed record

Posted on Posted in Science News

2011 will see the unveiling of a new British supercar which, if it works, will surpass the land speed record of 766 mph. The car will be 42 foot long, 9 foot high and will weigh 6.4 tonnes. The top speed will be 1050 mph, 1.4 times the speed of sound. The car will be driven by Andy Green, an RAF pilot, and will become the first man to drive a car through 1000 mph. Mr. Green, the holder of the current land speed record with the Thrust SSC, will be going 200 mph faster than before, and would be able to drive the length of Great Britain in under one hour.
