In 1969, the Laboratory of sports cars of the Kharkiv Highway Institute (LSA Hadi) began to develop a very unusual super -speed car. It was equipped with a RD-9BF jet engine from the MiG-19 fighter. Of course, at that time such a project was something fantastic and very difficult, so work on the car was completed only in 1978. Hadi-9 looked very unusual, because he resembled a rocket on wheels or a jet without wings. He was tricyrace and had a tail plumage. I weighed the 11-meter cars 2.
5 tons, and stopped its brake parachute. According to the calculations of the creators, the jet car had to develop a speed of almost 1 200 km/h, that is, could well overcome the sound barrier. The maximum speed was planned in several stages and initially intended to disperse the car to 700-800 km/h. For reference: the world speed record at that time was 950 km/h. The Hadi-9 tests were held at Chuguev and Volgograd airfields, as well as at the bottom of the dried salt lake Basquechak.
However, more than 500 km/h could not be developed, since all the routes were too short and the car simply did not have time to accelerate. Hadi-9 could show his true opportunities abroad, but he simply did not release it. For a long time, the car was displayed VDNG in Moscow and shot it in the movie "Speed" (in cinema it was called "Igla 02 SR"). Had-9 has not lived to this day. The salt from the Basquechak caused corrosion, which gradually destroyed the body of a unique car.
