Answer: 1,000mph. The vehicle, known as Project Bloodhound, will derive its speed from a jet engine AND a rocket engine. According to the BBC, RAF fighter pilot Andy Green will take the wheel sometime next year. Above is a rendering of what the vehicle will look like. For more visit http://www.bloodhoundssc.com/
