The TMC Dumont Features a Literal Plane Engine and Hubless Wheels

Strapping an aircraft engine to a motorcycle isn't an entirely novel concept but the TMC Dumont takes it a step further by drawing inspiration from the film 'Tron.' Constructed and conceptualized by Tarso Marques, a Brazilian racing driver, this ridiculous motorcycle draws its power from a 300hp Rolls-Royce Continental V6 engine from a 1960s aircraft. This gives the TMC Dumont a ridiculous amount of power and propels the two-wheeled monster to insane speeds.

The engine may be a point of focus for many motorcycle enthusiasts but the TMC Dumont also draws quite a bit of attention thanks to its unique wheels. Two massive 36-inch hubless wheels appear to float on the bike and give the piece an incredibly futuristic aesthetic.
