Pretty cool stuff. Imagine rocking up to the local car hangout with something like this. The noise level is something like 120db at idle!

There are a few of these getting about, check them out on Youtube. Just punch in "928 Turbine" in to a Youtube search and turn up the volume.

Apparently the afterburners thrust velocity is something like 500mph skyward at full noise so even if the car was travelling at 160mph the heat would still be blown clear over the cabin.

Great thing to own but i think you need to be a bit of an eccentric type.

I'm sure that the thought of converting Priscilla into something like this has crossed Cams' mind.
