It looks like a rocket, but this thing is actually a motorcycle. The British brand is hoping that this sleek looking bike will nab the motorcycle land speed record. The company last held the record back in 1970 and they want it back.

The standing world record is 376.363 mph. They aim to hit speeds of over 400 mph with this beast. This 25 foot-long motorcycle is powered by dual turbocharged Rocket III engines that have a total displacement of 2,970cc, and it produces upwards of 1,000 hp and 500 lb-ft. of torque. Pretty crazy right?
