Building Bloodhound

It’ll take over 3,500 parts to build Bloodhound, many of which are on display in this video, including driver Andy Green, arguably the vehicle’s most vital ‘component’


The Bloodhound SSC project aims to break the current world land speed record of 763mph (1,227.92km/h) in 2015 and then to set a new world land speed record of 1,000mph (1,609.34km/h) in South Africa in 2016.

As well as breaking the world land speed record, the project is also actively engaged in schools to inspire the next generation of engineers and scientists.
