Crikey! That noble beast would use twenty quid's worth of juice if you just
shook the keys at it!

Author Nitish Kurup ( ago)
Which should be good considering that it's a 27 litre V12, compared to some
new engines that aren't even half its size but only do 8mpg or even worse.
And that 10mpg can get even better if it is fitted with a proper full
exhaust system.

This "car" was built in finland, and unfortunately it is just an engine on
wheels - It has no transmission whatsoever so it can't be driven.

Author eggboy1987 ( ago)
Don't get me wrong yeah? this thing's AWSOME... it just looks funny. Like a
toilet seat behind a huge coffin on a frame with fenders.... ohhh and the
wheels compared to the size of the engine is like a shopping's cart
wheels... definitely fatter tires needed! :)

Author goPlay ( ago)
I think it could use wider tires.

Author InnerSpaceTravel1 ( ago)
@jospi2 Way cool. I saw a tank-engined car at the Bonneville Salt Flats in
the late 1980's. 

Author soefrie87 ( ago)

@InnerSpaceTravel1 No, it's from a tank. It is a detuned Spitfire engine.

Author sacr3 ( ago)
What we didn't see is him running it for 1 minute longer and running out of
gas. This thing probably consumes gas faster than a fat woman does cake.

I think you need fatter tires on that.
