Publicity stunts such as a race against a Bugatti Chiron have also brought some positive media coverage to the cause, but now, Commander Stuart Edmondson, who recently took over the project, says that thanks to new investment, the project is in full swing.
“We don’t need a billionaire, we just need a wealthy investor” he said. “£10 million – that is the figure that people need to focus on. You can have 11 million in the bank, then you can afford it,” he told The Sunday Times at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The Bloodhound project has been operational since 2008, and the car is currently sitting in the Coventry Transport Museum. Its Rolls-Royce jet engine and Nammo rocket system are as ready as its driver is to set a new record. While the car has been designed to reach 1,000 mph, Edmondson wants to aim for 850 mph first, and hopes to do so without emitting a single slither of carbon.
