How To Build The World's Fastest Car

In 2016, a team of engineers and adventurers will travel to the South African desert and attempt to become the first people to drive a car at 1,000mph. The British-made vehicle, Bloodhound SSC, is designed to smash the current world land-speed record of 763mph to become the fastest car ever built.

Amazingly, this incredible target isn't even the project's main goal. The aim was to inspire the next generation of problem solvers to put their great talent into science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The fuel pump is a Jag V-8 delivering 13 gallons per second of hydprox to the rocket. That's absolutely freakin' nuts. I love it.
