The BLOODHOUND has introduced the Project centres based on BLOODHOUND SSC,The perfect supersonic car which is designed not only on the basis of to go faster than the speed of sound (supersonic) but to over 1,000mph (1,600km/h). It will cover a mile in just 3.6 seconds.
BLOODHOUND SSC is approximately 13.4m long and weighs 7.5 tonnes. The design is a mix of car and aircraft technology, with the front section being a carbon fibre monocoque (like a racing car) and the back portion being a metallic framework and panels (like an aircraft). The two front wheels sit within the body and two rear wheels are mounted externally within wheel fairings.
The Car which can be given power by both the jet engine and a rocket, which together will produce more than 135,000 horsepower: that’s more than six times the power of all the Formula 1 cars on a starting grid put together.
Over 110 man years of effort have been invested in the design, build and manufacture of BLOODHOUND SSC.
BLOODHOUND SSC is, without doubt has the most complicated car ever built. When finished, it will comprise over 3,500 parts (and 22,500 rivets), of which many have been designed and manufactured uniquely for this car. Consequently, The BLOODHOUND is a very difficult car to describe in detail! later on we desribe more in our next article.
