The world's first jet-powered Smart Car is insane

Staff writer

With a helicopter-sourced engine boasting 2,000 horsepower, Rocketbilly Racing brings you the world's first jet-powered smart car.

The 'Jet Car' is a standard 2008 model - with a fire-breathing turbo jet strapped to the back.

Capable of reaching 220mph, the wacky creation boasts a high performance General Electric T58-GE03 gas turbine engine.

Owner, Bill Berg, 44, has managed to keep the vehicle street-legal, and now, he loves nothing more than travelling the world showing off his latest prized asset.
