A pulse jet engine is basically a type of jet engine in which combustion occurs in pulses. It can be made with few, or no moving parts, and is capable of running statically (i.e. it does not need to have air forced into its inlet typically by forward motion). Colin Furze decided to add a pulse jet engine system onto his motorized drift trike, and insane speeds ensued. Continue reading to see a video on how Colin built his drift trike.
Covini's C6W is the world's first and only 2-seat, 2-door supercar with 6 wheels, complete with a removable roof section. Inspiration for the car was taken from the 1976 Tyrrell P34, which had two pairs of smaller front wheels, a principle applied to the C6W. The project was started in 1974 but abandoned shortly after, and left dormant into the 1980s due to the lack of availability of low-profile tires at the time. In 2003 the project was revived and in 2004 the C6W was shown in prototype form. Powering this unique vehicle is a 4.2L V8 engine that generates 420-horsepower and 346 lb-ft of torque, good for a top speed of 185mph. Click here for more pictures.
