Caption

Kaye Don with the Sunbeam Silver Bullet, 1930. This car was built to make an attempt on Henry Seagrave's Land Speed Record. The Silver Bullet was powered by two 12 cylinder engines designed to produce 4000 hp. Unfortunately the car was prone to catch fire, and after failing to get within 40 mph of Seagrave's 1929 mark of 231 mph in an attempt at Daytona Beach, Florida in 1930, Don abandoned the project.
