Aussie Invader 5R


The Australian racer Rosco McGlashan claims that the vehicle Aussie Invader 5R is capable of breaking 1,000mph using high-end technology. The Australian will try to break the land speed record in 2014. The streamlined, bullet-shaped car is nearly built. It is considered the fastest land-speed car.

Another team from UK will also challenge the 1,000mph record with the hybrid Bloodhound SSC.

If successful, the adventurers will travel faster than a bullet, flying from 0-1,000mph in 20 seconds. That is an important step to push the boundaries of human knowledge and endurance. Reaching and maintaining such speeds requires innovative components and state-of-the-art technology.


The Aussie Invader 5R will cost $4 million (£2.6 million). The 16-metre (53-foot) vehicle will be powered by a missile rocket fuelled with liquid oxygen and a kerosene-based bio- fuel.

It will travel faster than the speed of sound. The supercar features nine-tonned body when fully fuelled. It is designed with a downward-tilted nose-cone and small adjustable wings or canards on either side of the front section designed to counter any lift.
