The BLOODHOUND Build Team have almost finished final assembly of upper chassis. Around 12,000 aerospace grade rivets were pulled last week as the team raced to fit and glue the titanium skin in place before the 'best before date' of the glue expires.
Last week the BLOODHOUND Build Team achieved a significant milestone in the build of the world’s most powerful racing car when they fitted its sate-of-the-art EJ200 jet engine for the first time.
BLOODHOUND's resident artist Stefan Marjoram took time out to sketch the upper and lower chassis togther with the carbon composite monocoque.
BLOODHOUND's upper chassis is starting to take shape. The state-of-the-art EJ200 Eurofighter Typhoon jet engine will hang within this aluminium structure. The aluminium stringers that run the length of the chassis and titanium skin will carry the loads generated by the jet engine into the rest of the car.
