The Rolls-Royce Spey

Thrust SSC is powered by two Rolls-Royce Spey jet engines, as used in the RAF and Royal Navy's Phantom fighter-bomber aircraft. Testing of the car is performed using two Spey Mk202s, while record runs utilise a more powerful hybrid Mk202 - often called a Mk205 - version of the engine.
