Mini Cooper (Part 1/2) With Helicopter Turbine Jet Engine Smokes
Having shared the track with it at Homestead Miami Speedway in my 2002 Cooper S it was outrageously fast in a staight line but seeming dangerous trying to turn. Are there plans to try to make it turn a corner or will this be a drag machine? Since the Mini is a throttle by wire any thoughts of syncronizing the two engines to the single throttle pedal?

HEFFNER PERFORMANCE WORLD'S FIRST EIGHT SECOND LAMBORGHINI GALLARDO
Video footage of the world's first Lamborghini Gallardo to break the eight
second barrier in the 1/4 mile. This car was built by the team at Heffner
Performance, Inc.. This was the first outing for this car which went very
well. The car was driven to and from the track and was run in street trim.
Starting the 1909 Blitzen-Benz, UNEDITED, @ Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
The Blitzen-Benz was purpose built to do just one thing, to break speed
records (not racing), and it did repeatedly from 1909 through 1911.
(Edited version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga2HtUHzUuw )
Its speed of 228.1km/h (141.73mph) on April 23rd, 1911, driven by Bob
Burman at Daytona Beach, stood as a record until 1919. Twice the speed of
the fastest airplane, (12 April, 1911, Alfred Leblanc @
69.442mph/111.801kph in a Blériot Blériot) and even shattering the record
speed of 210km/h set by a locomotive in 1903.
This record was not even officially broken in an airplane until 1920!
Of the six originally built, this is one of only two that exist today, and
is displayed at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
While the extended and nuanced effort required to start the Blitzen-Benz on
a cool coastal morning can try the patience of some viewers, its historical
significance and ground-breaking engineering brilliance still place it
amongst the greatest motor-vehicle achievements of all time, and the dozens
witnessing this effort felt it was one of the highlights of many great
moments at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance 2011.
Here's a great collection of vintage and modern images of the Blitzen-Benz
