Bloodhound Supersonic Car - level 1

Bloodhound Supersonic Car - level 1

02-10-2015 15:00

The Bloodhound Supersonic Car is not a normal car. It is part rocket, part supersonic jet, and part car.

It can go really fast. People want to set a new record. They want to go 1,000 miles per hour. That is faster than a bullet.

It takes 8 years to make this car. It is a big project. Many people work on the car.

Difficult words: supersonic (faster than the speed of sound), jet (a fast plane), bullet (the thing which you shoot from a gun).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
