British plans for the world’s first 1,000mph car

British engineers have unveiled plans for the world’s first 1,000mph car, a muscular streak of gunmetal and orange designed not to break the world land speed record but to shatter it. The proposed car will attempt to beat the existing record by more than 250mph. The car called Bloodhound SSC, is named after the British cold war supersonic air defence missiles.

There is an official supporters’ Club for The BLOODHOUND Project with access to a members-only area of The BLOODHOUND Project website The club called the BLOODHOUND SSC 1K Club offers a chance to help the project, see the car being built and to meet the team, and for Gold members, an invitation to experience a UK run of the car. Contributions from supporters club members helped fund the Thrust SSC Project that went on to set the current Land Speed Record.
