Delivering the 1600kph Bloodhound wheel…

But, then again, we don't need a land-speed-record car that'll do 1,600kph. But, if it's possible, why not? Both Bloodhound and the RRS are mightily impressive demonstrations of the engineering ingenuity of the modest little isle. To Britain: achieving the improbable with a lot of horsepower and even more tea!
