When this baby hits 1000 mph, you’re gonna see some serious s#*t (5 Photos)

This is the Bloodhound SSC. In short order it's going to use its Rolls-Royce EJ200 jet engine and hybrid-rocket to deliver 47,500 pounds of thrust, thus propelling it to 1000 mph and shattering the land speed record. Former fighter-pilot and driver Andy Green will pilot the rocket. At 1000 MPH, the Bloodhound SSC will be traveling at over a quarter mile a second or roughly 1,466 feet per second.
Nuts and bolts at Jalopnik.
