Default Bloodhound SCC Going for 1,000 MPH

My favorite part of the article:

Thus, the supercharged V8 will actually be in charge of powering the oxidizer pump, funneling 800 liters (211.3 gallons) of High Test Peroxide to the rocket in just 20 seconds. For those keeping score at home, thatís the equivalent of 40 liters (10.5 gallons) every second.

Put another way, this thing gets 0.026 MPG at top speed. hahahahaha
