Tests were carried out for the engineering team to investigate data and adjust for priority on speed performance. The Bloodhound SSC is engineered from 3,500 individual components, which required both static and dynamic testing.
The car has been gradually increasing speeds, with on-going testing and adjustments in order to produce the World’s Fastest Car (aiming for 1,000mph speed records.)
