At an event today in London’s Canary Wharf, The BLOODHOUND Project revealed the world’s fastest and most advanced racing car: BLOODHOUND SSC
As we get closer to completing the most extraordinary straight line racing car in history, it's easy to forget the most important part of building the world's first 1000 mph Car.
Looking back at 2014, we could see financial trouble coming in mid summer. There were two deals on the table and if both failed we would have to stop. But now, 2015 is the year we go to the desert to run BLOODHOUND SSC to 800mph and hopefully a new World Record.
The BLOODHOUND Project today started the 12-month countdown to its first Land Speed Record attempt, and celebrated Jaguar joining the programme as Innovation Partner, by staging a high-speed communications test at Hakskeen Pan, South Africa.
We got a chance to show off all our progress this month to one of our long-term supporters. HRH Prince Philip has been a keen follower of the Land Speed Record since the Thrust SSC days, so it was a great pleasure to welcome him to the BLOODHOUND Technical Centre to see our latest efforts. He lived up to his reputation for being great fun as well as very quick on technical details
