The pursuit of 1,000 mph on land is both elusive and seriously expensive. The owner, Ian Warhurst, resurrected the project in 2018 but is now giving up on the pricey Bloodhound LSR Project pursuit that requires massive amounts of funding to run. He hasn’t been able to take the Bloodhound past the current 763 mph record, a significant way off from an even grand. In fact, he’s only made it to 628 mph (yawn). The Bloodhound needs rocket-powered thrust to gain more speed, and it currently only has a jet engine. New funding is going to be a challenge, for sure, but perhaps new ownership can push the Bloodhound closer to its goal. If the record is even attempted, money could roll in for investors. If nothing transpires, the car will most likely get mothballed until a more promising future.
