Live Out Your Fast & Furious Fantasies With This Turbine-Powered Fiero

The flying Pontiac Fiero from Fast 9 might be the most ridiculous vehicle introduced to the Fast & Furious franchise so far. It was essentially a rocket with a car body attached to it, somehow capable of going into space. If you’ve, for some reason, ever thought you might like a car like that, well, here’s your chance.

This heavily modified 1984 Pontiac Fiero has been rebuilt from the ground up to run on turbine power, designed to be raced on oval speedways. The powerplant is a surplus General Electric T-58, the same type of engine you’d find powering a variety of U.S. military helicopters built between 1955 and 1984. The builder converted it from shaft drive to thrust, and estimates it makes 1200 hp at 26,300 rpm. There’s an afterburner, a variable exhaust nozzle, and even exhaust vectoring to assist in high-speed turning.
