Bloodhound car attempts to beat land speed record

Science Editor

The latest British attempt to tackle the world land speed record has undergone its first public tests. The ‘Bloodhound Supersonic Car’, which is fitted with a Eurofighter jet engine has been in development for nine years. The team behind it achieved 200 miles an hour in just nine seconds. That need for speed is just the first stage of an attempt to prove the Bloodhound’s capabilities with an eye firmly on the main prize of an eventual 763 miles an hour.
