Bloodhound Invites Speed Enthusiasts to Make History for a Price

For those who have fantasized about rocketing into the record books, Bloodhound LSR's latest campaign could turn those dreams into a thunderous reality. As the team sets its sights on an ambitious 800 mph land speed record, it's not just a hefty cash injection they require, but a daredevil at the helm willing to navigate the journey.

The Ultimate Driving Challenge Awaits

Bloodhound's quest is not for the faint of heart or the light of pocket. With a price tag of £12 million required to propel the project forward, potential drivers are invited to not just occupy the seat but help fund the car's journey into history.

Bloodhound

More Than Just Speed

It's an endeavor that transcends sheer velocity. Beyond bringing the necessary funds, the successful candidate will enter a realm of high stakes and high speeds, under the tutelage of world-renowned speed demon Andy Green. The challenge is as much about precision and nerves of steel as it is about the thrill of the chase.

A Rocket on Wheels

The Bloodhound car, a marvel of engineering, marries the power of a Nammo rocket motor with a Rolls-Royce EJ200 jet engine—the same powerhouse that propels the world's elite jet fighters. Yet, in a nod to sustainability, this machine will sprint across the South African track on synthetic jet fuel, aiming to set a new precedent in high-speed travel and aerospace innovation.

The Race to Greatness

This is more than a call for sponsorship; it's a call to be part of a historic undertaking. Bloodhound's initiative will attract global attention, as they tour the U.K. with a full-scale replica to rally support and excitement. The chosen one will have the unique opportunity to shatter the land speed record of 763.035 mph, set over two decades ago.

For those with the means and the mettle, this is a chance to leave a supersonic mark on the annals of automotive history. The Bloodhound LSR team awaits its next speed pioneer.
