Bloodhound Exhibition

Here are some images of the Bloodhound supercar (part of the Bloodhound Project) at an exhibition in Canary Wharf, London, 2015. Enjoy! The car is expected to reach 1000 m.p.h. supersonic speed in due course after suitable tests in the desert (perhaps at Hakskeenpan, South Africa) and eventually break the current land speed record; initial tests are scheduled for 2018. It will be driven by current land speed holder, Wing Commander Andy Green. It will be powered by an EJ200 jet engine and a hybrid rocket engine for thrust (an incredible 135,000 horsepower) as well as an auxiliary power unit. Click on images to expand.
