A jet-powered car set to attempt to break the world land speed record next year has been unveiled in the Northern Cape this week – ready to undergo low speed testing. 

The Pommie-built Bloodhound LSR (short for Land Speed Record) car is powered by a 54,000 horsepower Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jet engine. It was displayed in the Hakskeen Pan dried-up desert lake close to the border of Namibia.
