A jet-powered car Bloodhound SSC clocked up 537 kilometers per hour

After Bloodhound was saved from bankruptcy, the car was repainted in the new colors

The First full cars appeared in the early nineteenth century, and could accelerate up to 20 kilometers per hour. Now there are vehicles which, if necessary, one hour can pass . And this is not the limit of the car, so for over ten years, the American Bloodhound company wants to accelerate their own jet-car to the speed of sound. The other day she was one step closer to realizing its goal of developed by Bloodhound LSR successfully dispersed to 537 miles per hour. In the near future the company will double the figure and push the car up close to supersonic speeds over 1227,9 kilometers per hour.

the company Bloodhound is not perfect. In 2018, she faced a big problem — she lost all the money and was on the verge of closing. However, developers of the fastest car in the world quickly noticed British businessman Ian Warhurst and made the necessary investment in the project. In the end, the work on creation of a jet car was restarted. The attempt to disperse the car to record speeds in October 2019. To everyone's surprise, the company broke terms and recently demonstrated the capabilities of the Bloodhound LSR throughout the African Kalahari desert.

the fastest car in the world

According to the newspaper , prior to testing from the bottom of a dried up salt lake has produced approximately 16,500 tonnes of soil and laid the track. Initially the car drove on the road with the measured speed of 160 kilometers per hour. Then the pilot made a check on the speed of 321 kilometers per hour. The third time the driver made a 12-second warm-up and accelerated from standstill to the speed of 537 miles per hour. For the Bloodhound LSR is a very good indicator, but the team doesn't want to stop there.

did you know what speed develop

For four subsequent weeks the car will make the new arrivals, gradually increasing the speed to 80 kilometers per hour. In the end, until the end of the current year, the company intends to achieve speeds exceeding 800 kilometers per hour. The absolute speed record, equal 1227,9 kilometers per hour, it is planned to break in 2020 — what kind of speed will be able to reach the car, is still unknown.

How a car behaves at high speed?

Fastest car is equipped with a Eurojet EJ200 engine, which is usually installed on military aircraft. It is itself reminiscent of an aircraft — this form is designed to minimize air resistance. It is known that at high speeds the wheels of an alloy of aluminum and zirconium starting slightly off the ground, so it becomes as difficult as possible. That's why as a pilot was selected racer named Andy green, who has experience running high-speed machines.

It was this man back in 1997 I brought my car to the Thrust SSC unthinkable at that time the speed of 1227,9 kilometers per hour. It turns out that in 2020, the rider will attempt to break his own record. This will require the maximum concentration and the response, because driving at supersonic speeds like driving on ice.
