Bloodhound to blast its way into record books with zero-emissions rocket

Posted by in category: transportation

Zero to 658 in 50 seconds without emissions.


The Bloodhound LSR team has announced plans to challenge for the land speed record using a zero-emissions rocket as part of the next phase of its programme, following successful high-speed tests in South Africa last November.

The land speed record car has returned to the UK Land Speed Centre, Bloodhound’s HQ in Gloucestershire, after having successfully completed its crucial high-speed tests in South Africa.

These tests took place on the Hakskeenpan: a dry lake bed in the Kalahari Desert, during which the land speed record vehicle notched speeds of 628mph (1,010km/h), placing the Bloodhound LSR car, unofficially, as the sixth-fastest car of all time.
