World’s most powerful supercar unveiled

World's most powerful supercar unveiled

The world’s most powerful racing car – with a speed of 1,000mph – is set to be unveiled. The supersonic racer, named Bloodhound, will go on display in front of 8,000 people in Canary Wharf.

It is hoped that the £10 million UK-built car will shatter the world land speed record, which currently stands at 763mph, when it is tested at full speed.

The Bloodhound will undergo 200mph trials next year at Newquay Aerohub in Cornwall before embarking on a series of high-speed runs in a desert venue in South Africa. At full speed the car will cover a mile in just 3.6 seconds.

It has three power plants – a Rolls-Royce EJ200 jet from a Eurofighter Typhoon, a cluster of Nammo hybrid rockets and a Jaguar V8 engine that drives the rocket oxidiser pump. Between them they generate 135,000 thrust horsepower, equivalent to 180 F1 cars. The pencil-shaped car will be 44ft (13.4m) long, 6ft (183cm) in diameter and weigh 7.5 tonnes.

Members of the public will see the Bloodhound in its land speed record attempt configuration with its two metre high tail fin – required for stability at high speed – in place for the first time. Engineers have partially removed the carbon fibre panels from one side of the vehicle in order to show off the technology inside.

Visitors will also get the chance to look inside the finished cockpit – a huge and complex monocoque crafted from multiple layers of carbon fibre – and see the sophisticated digital dashboard.

Mr Noble said: “Public interest in the project is incredible and thanks to the generous support of our partners we are delighted to able to bring Bloodhound to London and put it on show…With the car now built and the track in South Africa prepared our focus is on racing in 2016…That part of the adventure starts with runway tests at Newquay Aerohub next Easter.”

Video: Stunt Driver Sets New World Record For Tightest Parallel Park

Video: Stunt Driver Sets New World Record For Tightest Parallel Park

Remember your driving test? Parallel parking probably seemed like the hardest part of getting a license, but there are some that have almost made it a competitive sport.

Yes, the Guinness World Record for parallel parking has been hotly contested in recent years. Chinese stunt driver Han Yue recently regained the title of most-precise parker after losing it to a pair of British brothers last year.

Yue broke the record in a MINI Cooper S during the recent China Drift Championship event at Chongqing Olympic Park, sliding into a space just 8 centimeters (about 3.1 inches) longer than the car.

That beats the 5.16 inches set by Alastair Moffatt in an original Mini. That happened on the same day his brother John beat Yue’s original record, but now Yue is back on top and it looks like he might be there for some time.

The dramatic sliding seen in the video isn’t just for showing off, either. With so little clearance, reversing a car into the space the conventional way simply won’t work. With this latest record, it seems like there’s as little room for advancement as their is between the parked MINIs’ bumpers.

It’s also somewhat ironic that, while professional drivers are competing to accomplish the tightest parking jobs, the number of regular drivers that can competently parallel park could very well decrease as electronic aids take over much of the work.

Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez was photographed enjoying the Autocar Performance Show 2013 in Mumbai on October 20th 2013, suggesting she has a genuine soft spot for fast cars.

Apparently the ‘Murder 2’ beauty was never into cars before, but after acting in Abbas-Mustan’s thriller ‘Race 2’ the actress believes her knowledge about automobiles has increased significantly.

A blue coloured coveted collector’s Tata Nano appeared at the show and was signed by the Bollywood actress. The special edition compact car was then given away to one lucky competition winner.

VIDEO: Jean-Claude Van Damme does the splits between two moving lorries

Jean-Claude Van Damme

53 year-old Jean-Claude Van Damme has been using his flexibility to demonstrate the precision of Volvo Trucks’ new dynamic steering system – by doing the splits in between two moving trucks.

The video advert has gone viral since it was first uploaded to YouTube on 13th November, and Volvo Truck’s public relations manager insists that it was 100% real and was filmed in one take! Apparently Van Damme’s feet were placed on small platforms that were built on the side mirrors of the trucks.

Van Damme reportedly did use safety equipment during the shoot which took place at a closed-off airstrip in Spain. The stunt had to be completed within just 15 minutes after 8am on the day when the sunlight was just right.

At the start of the video, the Belgian actor is heard saying: ‘I’ve had my ups and downs, my fair share of bumpy roads and heavy winds. That’s what made me what I am today. Now I stand here before you. What you see is a body crafted to perfection.”

All the mainstream news publications are commenting on the video, but no-one seems to have mentioned the fact that the trucks are moving backwards…would you have noticed if we hadn’t said anything?

Businessman Turns Down £6m Offer For Number Plate

F1 Number Plate

Businessman Afzal Kahn first bought his ‘F1’ number plate back in 2008 for £440,000, which you might already think is a considerable sum. However Kahn was recently offered £6m for it, which is a 1250% increase in value in just 5 years. He turned it down.

So “why on earth didn’t he take the money?” I hear you ask. “However good the ‘F1’ plate looks on his £1m 16-cylinder Bugatti Veyron, surely everyone has their price.” Well, you may be onto something. Maybe Mr Khan is holding out for a bigger offer, one closer to the £7.1m allegedly paid for the ‘1’ plate in 2008.

F1 Plate

Or perhaps Mr Kahn simply doesn’t need the money. He is a highly successful business owner after all, with his own private plate collection. It has been said that he is enjoying the publicity over his refusal to part with his favourite plate.

If you can believe it, the ‘F1’ plate was originally partnered with aVolvo S80! If you owned the ‘F1’ plate, what car would you want to go with it?
