Record Breaking Car Speeds

Right before World War I, automobiles could go over 100 MPH. Even back then, the “horseless carriage” could cruise on the open road. But going much faster than that took some time. It took real mechanical excellence and know-how.

It wasn’t long before speedometers were reading 140, 160 and 180 MPH. Car manufactures wanted to produce a new line of cars, something between luxury and sport. At the turn of the century, Jaguar, Audi, Aston Martin, Tesla, Range Rover and Volkswagen had perfected that model and concept.

Off the track and far from the roads, in the salt flats, cars are currently trying to break the land speed record. Their vehicles look more like fighter jets. And they are often piloted, err, driven by pilots.

The Bloodhound supersonic car has hopes of reaching over 1,000 MPH, next year, which would break the record by a couple hundred MPH.
