Bloodhound SCC – The 1000 MPH Car

BloodhoundSSC-1000-mph-car

Driver Andy Green is planning to break the world land speed record in 2016 with the Bloodhound SCC and hit a terrifying 1,000 mph. While this will be the world’s fastest car, it’s really a missile on wheels when you consider how it’s powered. Together, the EJ200 jet engine and Nammo hybrid rockets produce around 210 kN (21 tonnes) of thrust, equivalent to 135,000 thrust hp, or 180 F1 cars! Rolex designed two custom instruments, a speedometer and chonograph to withstand the extreme g-forces and vibrations the car will experience while accelerating, decelerating and going 1,000 friggin’ miles per hour! The vehicle has hi-tech electronic controls and gauges, but akin to the analog Rolex instruments it also has manual backups for everything to ensure the car can be stopped safely from high speeds. Better safe than sorry when you’re cruising at Mach 1.4.
