Blue Bird V – Joins National Motor Meseum Beaulieu

Blue Bird V

Looking like something out of Thunderbird’s this is – the world famous Land Speed Record Breaker Sir Malcome Campbell’s “Blue Bird V” which has joined the other two Blue Bird record breaking vehicles on display at the National Motor Museum Beaulieu. This famous car set a land speed record of 276.82 mph at Daytona Beach Florida back in 1935 and the driver Sir Malcolm Campbell went on to become the very first person ever to exceed 300mph on land when he managed to achieve a massive 301.129mph at Bonneville salt flats, Utah in September of the same year using the same vehicle. The vehicles were recently displayed for the first time in the UK at this years Goodwood Festival of Speed.
