The Sunbeam 1000 HP Mystery, is a land speed record-breaking car built by the Sunbeam car company of Wolverhampton that was powered by two aircraft engines.

It was the first car to travel at over 200 mph. The car's last run was a demonstration circuit at Brooklands, running at slow speed on only one engine. It is today on display at the Heritage Motor Center at Gaydon, having been presented to the National Motor Museum by Sunbeam in 1958.
