Jet Powered Sinclair C5

at 5:40 am. Filed under Crazy Hacks, Insane Equipment

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.”

    Yes Cool, But I’d wish they’d turn the dang music off! I’d rather hear it run.

    From the article “Alas, it’s diminutive power plant could only propel the vehicle to about 15 km/h.”
    I guess I’m just spoiled on the notion of a jet engine… What’s the point of if I can ride a bike faster!

    Over-engineered, underpowered and impractical. Was probably a lot of fun to design though.
