BLOODHOUND SSC is a pencil-shaped car powered by a jet engine and a rocket that is designed to reach approximately 1,000 miles per hour (1,609 km/h) Mach 1.4 It is being developed and built with the intention of breaking the land speed record by the largest ever margin.

Faster than a bullet fired from a .357 Magnum

Very interesting shot of the rocket car.

TonyWalker Studio4t1 on February 13, 2015

Thank you Warner Athey. What a beast. Rocket and jet powered. It should be good to see it on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.

It is in the news today Tone as I'm sure you know.

At an event today in London’s Canary Wharf, The BLOODHOUND Project revealed the world’s fastest and most advanced racing car: BLOODHOUND SSC. The product of eight years of research, design and manufacturing, involving over 350 companies and universities, the car is the centre-piece of a free exhibition, booked out within days of being announced, with 8000 people coming to see the Land Speed Racer

Hi Nick. Yes I saw it on the News and have been looking for it in my photos for a couple of days and just stumbled across it lol. This was the second time I've seen the mighty Bloodhound. thanks for the update. did you know it has a typhoon jet engine as well as a rocket and is faster than any jet aircraft:))) I hope it succeeds in it's endeavours. I wish them the best of luck. I took this photo at the Festival of the sea a few years ago now. All the best Tone
