This guy is just some millionare that owns a company that sells stuff to the automakers for FI. He lives here in Michigan. This was a car project that he did... got a good deal on the jet for just under $100,000. It idles on like 13,000RPM and runs wide open at 26,000RPM. The car can run off the normal motor in the front and use the jet for some "extra kick".
But....he didn't go anywhere! Kinda like that 18 wheeler with the jet engine on it. Just for show, doesn't even race. RACE THAT THING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Flames out of the back of a VW don't impress me. 170MPH out of a VW impresses me (especially with flames ). He might as well have saved money on the car and just mounted that thing to the ground and roasted chicken with it.
