Imagine going faster than a bullet from a handgun ... on land! Here's the Bloodhound SSC (stands for Super Sonic Car) that is designed to travel faster than 1,000 mph (1610 km per hour) or Mach 1.4:
The vehicle's driver will be wing commander Andy Green, a Royal Air Force fighter pilot, who set the current speed record of 763 mph with Thrust SSC in October 1997.
The three-year mission will be led by Richard Noble, who also project-led the Thrust SSC and himself held the world speed record between 1994 and 1997.
Noble said: "The next three years are going to be tough, testing and damned exciting."
The wheels on the jet- and rocket-powered car, which will be 12.8 meters long and weigh 6.4 tons, will spin at more than 10,000 times per minute.
