Jet Powered Sinclair C5

The Sinclair C5 doesn’t look like a vehicle that would turn many heads. Dropping a Jet Engine into the Sinclair sure changes that!
Video after the jump.

“I purchased the C5 from a nice chap called Ron, the entire chassis is going to be replaced and the power source will be a gas turbine. I’m going to drop the Turboshaft Kart and use the engine as a Turbo Jet conversion on the ‘Jet Powered Sinclair C5’. The engine is an Air Research JFS100-13A; its happens to be the same make and model of engine that is being used on the Jet Go-Kart.”
