The Bloodhound supersonic car project that’s spent the last decade aiming for a 1,000-mph land record is dead, succumbing to financial burdens after it wasn’t able to get a large enough investment to keep going. That means the supersonic car has to go, and it’s all yours for about the price of a lame, measly supercar. The choice here is obvious. Bloodhound driver Andy Green told the BBC last week the car was already up for sale at 250,000 pounds, or $315,422 at current exchange rates—surprisingly the right price to make the next owner a tossup between a millionaire teenager and another group that may keep going after the land-speed record with it. Regardless, roughly $315,000 will get one wealthy person a land rocket with a Rolls-Royce-built Eurofighter jet engine, made by the Bloodhound project in 2015 in pursuit of the land-speed record. The current record is 763 mph, but the Bloodhound group didn’t want to just beat that—they wanted to hit … [Read more...] about The 1,000-MPH (?)

The V-8 engine has defined American performance since Henry Ford stuck a low-cost flathead V-8 in the 1932 Ford. It made cars faster than their brakes and suspensions could handle during the muscle car era of the 1960s, got choked during the gas crisis of the 1970s, and came on strong again with a return to speed and power in the last 20 years. The 460-horsepower 5.0-liter V-8 in the current Mustang GT puts American muscle within reach of the automotive enthusiast. But that type of rip-snortin’, exhaust burblin’, gas-burnin’ performance could soon come to an end. READ NEXT: What does the Ford Mustang mean to America?
