DIY Car Care For Your Jet Powered Go Kart: Check out these tips on how to prevent automotive rust

Posted to Craigslist on December 18th, this jet powered go kart is powered by a Boeing 502-12 Gas Turbine engine and it reportedly provides more than 300 pounds of thrust.

The best news is the owner is willing to let it go for a cool $10,500.

Coming equipped with a seat, disc brakes, a steering wheel, frame, and four small wheels, there’s not much else featured on this one of a kind go kart.

Road and Track writer Kristen Lee joked in her article that including a life insurance policy with this bad boy’s Craigslist posting wouldn’t be such a bad idea.

In case you’re wondering what type of fuel this go-kart requires, you’ll be relieved to find out it takes diesel, so you won’t have to run out and acquire any jet fuel in order to power the vehicle.

Are you the type of person who is brave enough to ride in this custom go-kart?

Samuel Huist is easily the tallest member (6-feet 5-inches) of the The News Wheel team. He enjoys listening to hip-hop music and loves watching NBA basketball. Sam is also a Dayton, Ohio native and doesn’t seem to mind that distinction as much anymore. His first car was a 1996 Ford Taurus he could barely fit in. Like many young folks, he seemed more concerned about the radio in his first car than actually doing the work to maintain an automobile, so sadly it’s no longer with us. See more articles by Samuel.
