The car is Aussie Invader 5R, and it is now a reality, running a single bi-propellant rocket motor, producing 62,000 lbs of thrust (about 200,000 horsepower).
Aussie Invader 5R weighs 9.2 tonnes fully fuelled and can accelerate from 0 – 1,000 mph (1,600+ km/h) in just over 20 seconds. In that time, the car will burn 2.8 tonnes of propellant and, at full speed, will travel a mile (1.6 kilometres) in 3.5 seconds! This is the world’s most powerful car and is being built in Perth, Western Australia. This car is an engineering marvel and has taken nearly 20 years of work by some of the world’s best engineers, aerodynamicists and rocket scientists!
