    It's being developed for the 1000 mph land speed record car. This is all kinds of awesome!

    "The unique engine is described as a "hybrid" as it runs on a mixture of a liquid high test peroxide oxidizer and solid synthetic rubber fuel and uses the V8 from a Formula 1 racing car as an ignition system. The design is said to be safer and more controllable than either either a liquid or solid-fueled rocket alone can be."
