As technology continues to evolve and faster vehicles become more than just figments of speedsters' imaginations, more companies are setting their eyes on the prize of the world land speed record. The record, which has stood since 1997 at 763 miles per hour, was set by the ThrustSSC, a jet-propelled car of British origin. With groups like the British Bloodhound SSC vying for the title of the fastest vehicle on land, an ambitious group of Aussies is throwing their hat in the ring as well.

At speeds this fast, the massive land rocket will be zooming around faster than a bullet leaves the chamber of a gun. Breaking the world land speed record would be a great achievement for Australia as well since the country already maintains ownership of the world water speed record, set in 1978 at 345 miles per hour by Ken Warby. Managing to break the stranglehold the British have had on the world land speed record would be a great showing for Australia as a worldwide leader in engineering and technology.

Only time will tell if it’s the Aussie Invader 5R, the Bloodhound SSC, or some other high-speed vehicle to eventually break the world land speed record, but one thing’s for sure, it’s going to be the very definition of speed.
