Bloodhound SSC

Check out the awesome Bloodhound SSC. It is 13.5m long and weighs 7.5 tons. The Bloodhound SSC is capable of producing an unbelievable, 135, 000 bhp (Brake horsepower). The car is hoping to break the land speed record by hitting 1,000mph.

The acceleration of the Bloodhound SSC is incredible, it can accelerate from 0 to 1,000mph in just 55 seconds.



At its top speed it will cover a mile in just 3.6 seconds. When it comes to stopping it takes 65 seconds to decelerate, generating 3G (G-force) as it does, which more than the 2G it generates when it is accelerating.

It's the product of a collaboration between over 280 companies from around the world, and was part-funded by a UK government grant.




Next year the Bloodhound will attempt to break the current and speed record of 763mph, and will try reach the speed of 800mph. In early 2017 the Bloodhound will attempt to reach 1,000mph.

Projects like this really interest me and I can't wait to see the outcome, hopefully we will get to see the Bloodhound SSC destroy the current record and hit the speed of 1,000mph.
