THE pro­ject to de­velop the Blood­hound su­per­sonic car – which aimed to hit speeds of 1,000mph – has been scrapped.

Blood­hound Pro­gramme, the firm be­hind the ini­tia­tive to break the world land speed record, went into ad­min­is­tra­tion in Oc­to­ber.

Yesterday ad­min­is­tra­tors at FRP Ad­vi­sory an­nounced that ef­forts to se­cure an in­vestor had failed.

Pro­ject Blood­hound was founded in 2007, with plans to race the car at a spe­cially con­structed track in the deserts of South Africa.
