A team of engineers in Bristol are working on a new car – the Bloodhound SSC. They have one simple aim: to drive at 1,000mph. That’s right, one thousand miles per hour.

No one has ever driven so fast. The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport can hit just 267mph. When Top Gear’s Richard Hammond crashed, he was travelling at 288mph. The current world land speed record is 763mph, so it would seem we’re still quite a way off the 1,000mph marker.
