Breaking records

The Bloodhound SSC is a unique high-technology project, which focuses specifically on a 1,000 mph land speed record attempt. The project has recently come under new ownership which means the development of the car will continue.

The car is a cross between a fast fighter jet, formula one car and a spaceship and serves as a fitting example and endorsement of our unique supply capabilities. Smiths High Performance supplies 82% of the metal used in the building of the car. As a significant supply chain partner, our high-performance alloys can be found in the cars cockpit, nose & bulkhead, suspension, chassis, equipment bay and tail fin - using materials such as aluminium, steel, titanium and stainless steel.
