For roughly $30,000, you can purchase a miniature BMW M6, Porsche 911 or Dodge Viper and race it in the MitJet Series. At 1,100 pounds, the mini race cars are super light. However, the 125 horsepower motorbike engines help rocket the cars from 0-60 mph in just over 3 seconds.

Implications - The Mitjet has recently been seen running a series of races in France and Spain with other miniature replicas of famous sportscars. Each replica sits atop a souped-up racing chassis, so while they look like toys or digital photos, they are in fact all too real. Check out this video to get a look at these mean machines in action.
