Here's how the wheels of the supersonic car are made

When you're trying to build the fastest car in human history, like the guys making the Bloodhound SSC, you have to make wheels that basically re-invent the wheel. To reach 1000mph and go supersonic, the wheels they're using weigh over 230 pounds, nearly 3 feet wide and spin four times faster than a F1 car. » 7/15/14 11:10pm 7/15/14 11:10pm

This is the cockpit of the supersonic car that will reach 1000MPH

This awesomeness—captured by photographer Stefan Marjoram—is the cockpit of the Bloodhound Supersonic Car, designed to set a new world land speed record of—at least!—1,000 miles per hour (1,609.34 km/h) in South Africa. Its pilot, Andy Green, explains how the instruments work in this video tour. » 6/14/14 1:29am 6/14/14 1:29am

How You Design Brakes To Stop a 1,000 MPH Car

When it comes to building the Bloodhound SSC, everything is uncharted territory for its designers. Because while the world's fastest production car, the Hennessey Venom GT, tops out at just over 270 miles per hour, the Bloodhound SSC is designed to go over 1,000 mph. And that creates countless engineering problems,… » 5/26/14 9:00pm 5/26/14 9:00pm

This 1,000mph World Speed Record-Breaking Car Has the Same Carbon…

That's what the Bloodhound SSC's attempt at breaking the world record for land speed will produce in greenhouse gases, claims its engineering lead, James Painter, who also said that driving just 10 miles in the car uses the same amount of energy that the whole of the Singapore Grand Prix uses in 20 minutes. » 4/21/11 12:00pm 4/21/11 12:00pm
