BLOODHOUND SSC Miniature Sheet (Mint)

The design encapsulates the engineering excellence involved in the project and reflects the development by including three unique print surfaces; metal ink, varnish and thermochromic ink, which vanishes when heated up to reveal the interior of the BLOODHOUND car.

There are 2 stamps revealing the BLOODHOUND car and 2 labels, one shows the famous Richard Noble and present world record holder Andy Green, BLOODHOUND's motorist. Behind the images lie technical line drawings highlighting that this is a showcase of the engineering expertise involved, in addition to the ambition of setting brand-new records.

The car consists of parts designed and developed in the Isle of Man, such as an essential regulator created by Swagelok which plays a vital function in the automobile's fuel system, together with other functions, and this release commemorates that link. The connection was reinforced in September 2017 when the BLOODHOUND team visited the Isle of Man to talk to secondary school pupils, with the objective of inspiring the next generation of engineers to take advantage of the training opportunities and career paths readily available in the Island.
