The BLOODHOUND SSC Mission
We have a wonderful opportunity with BLOODHOUND: an opportunity to create the ultimate land speed record car. When we designed and built Thrust2 we had the objective of achieving a peak speed of 650 mph, just beyond the existing record of 622.407 mph held by Gary Gabelich in Blue Flame.
Then came ThrustSSC, which raised the Thrust2 record by a whopping 130 mph – that’s 20%. But BLOODHOUND is different - so different. The target is 1,000mph - that’s a 31% jump and there is no way that the BLOODHOUND SSC is going to look like anything we have seen before. Visit www.bloodhoundssc.co.uk
