The Bloodhound: world’s fastest hybrid car

lhs

Aiming to break the world land speed record (a moderately pacy 1,610kph), the Bloodhound is actually a hybrid car. But not like any hybrid you’ve ever seen. The rocket-car will combine the thrust of a Falcon rocket and the raw power of a Eurojet 200 engine (the one powering the Eurofighter Typhoon military jet) to reach top speeds. Plus, it’ll chuck in an 800bhp V12 racing block for good measure. Earth loving? Nope. Earth shattering? Yes. Record shattering? The smart money says so.
