UK's 'Bloodhound' designed to break land speed record

British engineers trying to build the fastest car in the world to beat the record they set in 1997.

    Over the next few months British engineers will try to build the fastest car in the world - which they will call the "Bloodhound".

    The same team set the land speed record back in 1997, and now they will be attempting to break that record which stands at 1,287kph. 

    They hope their project will inspire students to take up careers in science, technology and mathematics.
