Craig Breedlove (5-time land speed record holder) has designed a new Spirit of America. He wishes to use it not only to regain the land speed record (held by Richard Noble's Thrust 2) but will challenge McLaren in a race to the sound barrier.

The new Spirit of America is 47 feet long and only 69 inches tall to the top of the tail fin. The jet powered car is supposed to be near completion.
