Colin Furze’s Jet-Powered Go Kart

Over the years, mad scientist Colin Furze has created a variety of insane devices, from Wolverine’s claws, to a firework-proof suit, to the world’s fastest baby stroller. Colin’s latest creation? A jet-powered go kart. That seems like a safe idea.

The crazy looking contraption runs on a mix of gas and diesel fuel, and spews forth a flame worthy of a rocket ship. If you’re wondering why Colin doesn’t get burned by all that heat when he’s driving it, that’s because the seat is backed with a heat shield.

So far, he’s been able to get the thing to top out around 60 mph, and he thinks he could go faster if he had a longer runway. Obviously, he needs one without bumps given this thing’s low ground clearance.

For more details on the build, head to Colin’s website or check out the making of videos below:
