Congratulations! You just broke the speed barrier!2. WHY DID YOU BREAK THE SPEED BARRIER??!?!!??!?!?!?! I CHALLENGE YOU TO A RACE AGAINST USAIN BOLT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Reply Can you even call this a carReply storytelling at its finest.Reply NOT THE FIRST.Craig Breedlove did it decades ago in the Spirit of America rocket car. It was recognized and recorded as the first supersonic drive based on the measuring equipment and standards that were in use at that time, the same equipment and standards that were used to record speed records for supersonic aircraft that still stand. The Thrust SSC wasn't the first as the team claims; they took advantage of the way changes in the speed of sound are measured at ground level. But the speed of sound hasn't changed, and Breedlove was the first to go faster.Reply Funny jokePlease clap.Reply Did he say 4.5 seconds to cover 1 mile? Holy crap!Reply I call bullshitReply I wonder how the car would do the dynoReply RIP Bloodhound sscReply The speed’s nothin’, it’s the sudden stop that’s the problem!Reply True English gent! James bond ain't got nothing on him lolReply So why is my pizza delivery not so piping hot?Reply Redefining Fast and the Furious. Salt Bed DriftReply Isnt the speed of sound 767 mphReply Does it have ac and a stereo?Reply USELESSReply Have you got capital xtra no exactlyReply Andy Green is the right guy for this job and easy to see he's a military pilot……talks like one and reacts like one. No messing about, no small talk and no pretentious boasts.Reply Stan Barrett went 739 MPH in the Budweiser Rocket Car In 1979, He was denied the record because it had three wheels. This is the exact same car backward with an extra wheel. Supersonic was achieved in 1979 by an American.Reply That’s not a carReply That is by far nothing even close to a car.Reply "Car"Reply Even if it might take more from a plane than a car, it’s still quite a feat of engineering to make something that rolls and go supersonic.Reply I'd like to know or see if he had a heart beat monitor on himself.Reply These idiots were #2 to go supersonic. They should pull up their big boy pants and just accept it.Reply I guess they would have to rent an f-16 to take film footage of itReply "CAR"Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
