The Vampire Jet Car is the UK Current Land Speed Record holder, having achieved an average speed of 300.3 Mph

Built in the late 1970’s the car was raced and demonstrated throughout Europe in the 1980’s. It was subsequently involved in a well publicised accident in 2006 after which it was sold and repairs were initiated by the Phelps family in Northamptonshire who have long history of association with the ‘Santa Pod’ Drag Strip in the UK. It was then acquired by a syndicate of eight people in November 2019 when it was relocated to the town of Bromyard in Herefordshire where a full rebuild and restoration was completed in July 2021
