Vampire & Hellbender

The Vampire and Hellbender were two Rolls Royce powered jet dragsters out of the U.K. In the 1980's they were the state of the art cars until the Hellbender crashed killing it's driver, Mark Woodley.

The Vampire continued to perform until this year, when Top Gear's Richard Hammond crashed during a segment. He crashed at over 280 mph, and survived with serious injuries. Currently looking to make a full recovery is testament to the safety and contruction of this vehicle.
