How on earth could it be street legal? I sure wouldn't want it out on the streets if I was in charge.

Did you read the article? It says that the Beetle still has the stock engine along with the jet engine, so as long as the jet engine isn't used on the street, it's street legal lol.

Wow, that thing is awesome. Although given the choice between that and the Ariel Atom I'd take the Atom!

In that case stop posting now. We already have enough uninformed idiots on this forum, we don't need to add one more.
