‘Bloodhound’ car kicks off bid to speed into record books

The Bloodhound Supersonic Car, effectively a fighter jet on wheels, on Thursday kicked off a bid to roar into the record books by eventually reaching 1,000 mph (1,610 kmh). It was the first public trial of the vehicle, powered by an EJ200 jet engine from a Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jet, ahead of a world record bid in South Africa in the next few years. Twenty years after setting the current world land speed record of 763 mph in the Bloodhound’s predecessor, Andy Green, a British air force pilot, will aim to surpass his achievement.
