Ron Patrick?s Jet-Powered Volkswagen Beetle and Honda Scoote
Posted 04 May 2006 - 11:09 AM
Ron fitted his VW Beetle with a 1350-hp GE Model T58-8F helicopter turboshaft engine. When he fired up 26,000 rpm jet, the fiery afterburner comes to life.
The cool thing is that the car is perfectly street legal! It still has the regular gasoline engine for everyday driving.
So, what?s next for Ron?
Why a jet-powered Honda Metropolitan scooter for his wife, of course!
