Jet Engine Powered Hybrid Super Car

Someone Pinch me…

Its not everyday you hear news of a jet-engine powered supercar, let alone one that is a hybrid. Don’t believe us? Check the specs:

0-60 in 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 150 mph.

Now here is the clincher…500 miles on a single tank of gas!!! This puppy runs on diesel or bio-diesel fuel which also helps lower the vehicles overall emission footprint. Its so clean in fact that the car doesn’t even come with an exhaust! The car can also operate solely on its lithium-polymer battery for about 80 miles. Once the battery has been drained to a specific point, the engine starts up quietly and recharges the sucker. This continues over and over again for a range of about 500 miles.

The battery can be recharged at designated outlet stations, or from the comfort of your own home. All-in-all, this beauty is about all one could want in a sports car without feeling bad about it. Price point is a bit steep with the rumored price around $200k. Its not for the faint of heart…or pocket, but if someone out there has a test vehicle could I PLEASE ride!!! I promise not to dirty the leather!!!
