0-60 ..BY THE TIME YOU READ THIS.

IT'S capable of reaching a top speed of 1000mph and accelerating from 0-60mph in one second - but would the Bloodhound SSC pass a fuel emissions test? The supersonic vehicle took years to build, using a mix of car and aircraft technology, and is powered by a jet engine and a rocket. The team who designed Bloodhound unveiled it yesterday in London and hope to break the world land speed record on a specially designed track in South Africa next year.

The current record of 763mph was set by another British car, Thrust SSC, in 1997.

CAPTION(S):

FUTURISTIC The cockpit of the Bloodhound bears little resemblance to that of other cars
