A car aiming to travel at 1000mph is nearing completion helped by the expertise of engineers at Swansea University.
They blended Formula 1, aerospace and rocket technology to model Bloodhound SSC's design.
The Swansea University team also designed the Thrust supersonic car which hit 763mph in 1997. The record hasn't been beaten.
Bloodhound SSC has a Rolls Royce Typhoon fighter jet engine and a rocket below. A Formula 1 car engine pumps the fuel.
Some of our schoolchildren got a chance today to see a new supersonic car - designed to go 1,000 mph miles and break the land speed record.
A model of the Bloodhound was on show outside the Senedd in Cardiff Bay. It's hoped it'll inspire a new generation of engineers.
Tom Sheldrick reports.
The Institution of Mechanical Engineers will bring a full-size model of the 1,000 mph Bloodhound car to Cardiff today.
The model will be on display at the Senedd to help raise awareness among schoolchildren, Welsh Assembly Members and the public about the project and its aims to inspire a generation about science and engineering.
The Institution of Mechanical Engineers is hoping the car will break the world land speed record by reaching over 1,000 miles per hour in the South African desert in 2015.
