The jet-powered Bloodhound SSC will make its 1,000 MPH world record attempt in 2016. And when driver Andy Green evacuates his bladder while blowing beyond Mach 1, if he's lucky, he won't be looking at these gorgeous gauges from Rolex. If he is, there's a good chance he's going to die.
To hit 1,000 mph – that's 239 mph past supersonic – Andy Green will be sharing this carbon fiber tube with the Grim Reaper, three engines and lots and lots of fuel. So much that the Bloodhound SSC is basically using one of those engines – a 750 hp Cosworth V8 – as a fuel pump.
