The design team behind the Bloodhound Super-Sonic Car has put its near-complete vehicle on show in London.
Some 8,000 people are expected to come and view it in Canary Wharf on Friday and Saturday.
Bloodhound has been built to smash the current land speed record of 763mph (1,228km/h) set by another British car, Thrust SSC, in 1997.
The new machine is due to start running next year on a special track that has been prepared for it in South Africa. 
The aim at first will be to do 800mph (1,287km/h). But the goal eventually is to push the record above 1,000mph (1,610km/h). This could happen in 2017.
It has taken eight years of research, design and man
