Land Speed Record Turbinator's Fastest Run 470 mph
August 2001, during the Speed Week trials on the Bonneville Salt Flats, Don
Vesco set the fastest one way time for a wheel driven car ever at an
amazing 470 mph. Don's "Turbinator" was powered by a stock 3750 hp T55 turboshaft engine. Don was forced to shut
down at 470 due to the short, 5 mile course, even though he was not
throttled up all the way. He returned in Oct. to officially establish the
F.I.A. absolute wheel driven record at 458.440.
Bloodhound SSC 1000 mph rocket car, land speed record attempt
Equinox Graphics is proud to present the visualisation of Bloodhound SSC,
the trans-sonic rocket car aiming to smash the current land speed record
and raise it to a mind-bending 1000 mph (Mach 1.4). The car is being

Spectre SpeedLiner Land Speed Record Run #1 - 328 MPH!
Spectre Performance took the brand new SpeedLiner racecar to Bonneville,
Utah, October 9 2009 to compete in the SCTA World Finals. The car is
powered by a 529ci (8.8L) twin turbocharged Cadillac engine drawing air through
off-the-shelf Spectre hpR air filters. Just two weeks ago the car was still
in pieces, but on its very first shakedown run veteran land speed racer
Kenny Hoover drove the car 287mph. This is the second run of the weekend,
328mph (a new high for gasoline powered streamliners in the AA/BGS class).
The car was then put in impound for inspection and the next day (October
11) it backed the run up for a new world record - 330.56 mph with a 340 mph
exit speed. The Spectre SpeedLiner is now the world's fastest Cadillac.
Here's a blast from the past! We found some old footage in the archives we
thought you might enjoy. This is The World's Fastest Single Piston Engine
Hot Rod. It set the F.I.A. 5L to 8L Class Ten two-way record in October
2002 at 405.976 after previously setting the 8L and larger Class II record
at 425.050, with a best one-way of 432 mph. Read more stories from the salt
