This Could Be the First 1,000 mph Land Vehicle

A slim blue needle raced down a runway in southwest England Thursday. Called the Bloodhound, the vehicle reached speeds of only around 200 miles per hour, but the team behind it has their sights set much higher. They hope to be the first to notch the 1,000 mph land speed record, a speed that today is only achievable in the skies.

The demonstration was the Bloodhound’s first public outing, and served as both a PR opportunity and a chance to get preliminary data on the vehicle’s performance
