This build is only in it’s early stages, but it is of such an extreme nature that I just had to feature it straight away. I think it’s one of those projects that will get a lot of exposure very quickly, and then I’d be all butt hurt about the fact I didn’t feature it sooner (as has happened in the past), so here it is. It’s quite simple really, the car is a Triumph Spitfire, and the engine is from a helicopter. Yep, nothing to it…

they’re probably building it coz nobody has. Sorry but I just can’t really bring myself to appreciate this build.
did you even have a look at the thread mate, a school program with a 250,000 borrowed turbine engine, to design a digital fuel delivery system! you must need a lot to impress you!
no I don’t need a lot. I just want them simple.
haha nobody had invented a long lasting light bulb before Edison, so I can’t appreciate those either. Surely there is something to appreciate about original thought.
The cad design needs some work at the rear end. Apart from that this thing will be a beast.
And I have a hunch they chose the car because of the name. Just a hunch
Tesla DID NOT invent the light bulb.
Know yer history, you morons!
For starters, read up on TheOatMeal => http://theoatmeal.com/comics/tesla 😛
The fuck .. of corpse, I meant Edison .. dammit.
Dont drink and comment .. 😀
Here it is running. It was later rebuilt as an all-electric car for the next year of students. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=–XlXEhVUEo
