Peer Into the Cockpit of a 1,000 MPH Car

When you're behind the wheel of a the car designed to hit 1,000 mph, you want the dash to be well appointed. Fortunately, looking at the newly finished cockpit of Bloodhound SSC reveals that it's fully loaded with tech.

As well as the rather essential speedometer, the car's future driver Andy Green says one of Bloodhound's most critical cockpit displays relays the wheel load data, telling him if the car's stable and still attached to the ground. "It's fundamental we keep the wheels on the ground. If we do that we can't have a crash," he said, already reassuring himself that everything's going to be okay.


The other stats hitting Bloodhound's screens give Andy braking data, hydraulic pressures, fuel information and various temperatures. No mention of if there's a 3.5mm jack for hooking up his phone to the radio, but there must be. It's pretty much a standard feature these days. [BBC]
