The Jet-Powered Go-Kart is the latest do-it-yourself venture from high-powered engine connoisseur Seth Kettleman.

Known to the online world for his many jet engine fueled vehicle creations from a replica Datsun of Back to the Future fame to a supercharged custom Batmobile, the designer never seems to run out of ideas for what he can strap a jet engine onto.

This little kart can hit, and exceed, speeds of 100mph thanks to the addition of a recycled Boeing 502-7 gas turbine engine that has been fastened onto the back of the vehicle. With its extremely low frame that nearly touches the ground and the excessive, ear-piercingly loud roar of the engine, riders may think that they are taking off in a bomber jet rather than cruising around in a go-kart.
