Video: Drive Talks to Andy Green About Bloodhound SSC

Bloodhound SSC Rear Dynamic Medium

Andy Green is the world’s fastest man on land after his twin-jet powered Thrust SSC broke the sound barrier 1997 after hitting 763mph, but his latest project (the Bloodhound SSC) is set to destroy that record with its aim of hitting 1,050mph by 2014.

And in the latest episode of Road Testament for Drive YouTube channel, Mike Spinelli had the chance to meet with the man himself and talk about all things jet-car related.

To see just how impressive this jet car is set to be, all you have to know is that it uses a 750hp Cosworth Formula One engine just to supply fuel to the hybrid rocket designed by 28-year-old rocketeer Daniel Jubb and all up, the Bloodhound will produce more than 135,000hp with a peak thrust output of 122,000Nm.
