    I'm suprised no mention of the Thrust SSC, which is the fastest car on Earth. It broke the sound barrier. 763mph iirc. You can hear the sonic boom here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYEtQGLzvkI

    From the article:

    There are many classes and many records but there is only one record the cars here have been designed to beat, the outright land speed record for wheel driven cars.

    All these cars have V8 engines except the diesel but even then there are 8 cylinders (two four cylinders)
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?
