The team that set the land speed record and built the first and only supersonic car have a new project – 1,000 mph.
It has an eight hundred horsepower V12 engine, just as a fuel pump for the hybrid rocket.
As of now, I am officially drooling.
There’s questions as to where they can run it at full whack – “In light of this impressive record, surely BLOODHOUND will return to the Black Rock Desert? Sadly, no. A lack of rain over the last decade, together with increasingly heavy use for the playa surface (principly by the annual Burning Man festival) has left the Black Rock surface in poor condition. It is bumpy, crumbly, rutted and uneven…” Leave No Trace my arse.
