PETROL-HEADS visiting Coventry Transport Museum have just a few days left to experience the thrill of travelling at 763mph.
It was 17 years ago this week the Thrust SSC – which is permanently based at the museum – reached the incredible speed which remains the world land speed record.
From Sunday (October 19) work will begin to move the 10.5-ton car and its predecessor, Thrust2, to a new Land Speed Record Gallery due to open at the museum in April 2015. It will be the last day visitors can ride the Thrust SSC Simulator and get a taste of what it is like to travel at supersonic speeds.
But as part of the new gallery there will be a brand new 4D simulator which will continue to provide a feel for jet-propelled land travel.
Coventry Transport Museum is open seven days a week between 10am and 5pm.
