Supersonic car project scrapped
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.
