That might sound like a number from the spec sheet of any number of supercar start-ups that flare into existence only to burn out before they’ve made anything, but a 1,000mph car really might happen soon.
The Bloodhound LSR (Land Speed Record) car is due to continue high speed testing this year, after going into administration* in 2018, despite having some high profile sponsors including Jaguar. Now under new ownership, the Bloodhound will run again, and we can’t wait, particularly after it all looked to be over just a year ago.
Minh-Kha N. thinks so too, having created this neat Lego model of the Bloodhound LSR that was suggested to us by a reader. You can see more of Minh’s model at his photostream via the link above, where we’ll be crossing our fingers that the LSR hits the magic 1,000mph mark someday soon.
