Speed is something we as humanity have craved since the dawn of time. It began with being able to run fast enough whilst hunting and today it is the quest to travel faster on land than a bullet. The land speed record is one of the most prestigious titles a man can hold and men have died in its pursuit, despite this title is still fought for. Today the British Bloodhound team have unveiled their 1,000MPH machine.
Shown at the Farnborough Airshow this potentially record breaking design has 133,150BHP thanks to a Eurofighter jet engine as well as a secondary rocket. We say secondary but it is the largest rocket ever produced in Europe. The Bloodhound SSC will begin testing at the start of 2012 and expects to claim 1,000MPH soon after.
