Bloodhound SSC

Bloodhound SSC is the result of remarkable engineering that allows the ultimate racing car to accelerate from 0 – 1609 km/h and back to zero in just 120 seconds, while handling the phenomenal forces and loads acting upon it such as 47000 pounds thrust (equivalent to 180 F1 cars) generated by its jet and rocket engines; 30 tonne suspension loadings; air pressures on the bodywork of up to 10 tonne per square metre and solid aluminium wheels, each weighing 105 kg spinning at 10,200 rpm and generating an extraordinary 50000 G at the rim.
