5 of The Fastest Cars On Earth that anyone would love to drive!!!

Speed has been a constant factor of interest in our live from the beginning. So much have changed from the invention of a small single stroke engine to engines of today.
We always do our best efforts to go faster  due to which today we are even able to leave the speed of sound behind.



1. ThrustSSC: A british Jet propelled car, set on 15 October 1997.

This jet car is the first manned car to have broken the sound barrier with an astonishing speed of 763 Mph ie  342 metres per second. It is powered by two Roles Royce Spey jet Engines which produced 50,000 pounds of thrust and 110,000 bph (horsepower) which is around 85 times the power of a regular street car. It accelerated from 0 - 600 mph in just 16 seconds due to which the driver (Andy Green: British Air Force Pilot) was subjected to 3 g's.

Its aluminium alloy wheels were custom designed by engineers which were tested at a spin of 95000 rpm, under these conditions most of the wheels would just explode.

Ran in 1997 in Black Rock Desert
Currently a new jet car 'Bloodhound SSC' is being created which would break all the records of history by travelling at a speed of 1000 Mph which is even faster than a bullet.


5. Jaguar XJ220 : 

This Exotic car manufactured in 1992 till 1994. Only 275 XJ220's have been built. It was a two seater car whose body type was 2-door couple.
