Rocket Powered VW Beetle

How often do you see 1350 horse power in a car that is street legal? That would be a lot of fun on the freeway during rush hour  traffic!!! I would probably get arrested!!!

I gotta say that home built rocket powered cars don’t look very cool at all.

VW jet engine car

The funniest thing about this car to me is that its bone stock minus this gigantic jet engine in the back!!! I’m sure the stock ride height and wheels help with stability and whatnot but come on… at least get the rims painted black or something!

Check out that filter! I wonder how loud that thing is on the inside of the car? Sure looks like it would be a blast to drive though!

Apocalyptic and Post Apocalyptic Vehicles #1

ford f650 Flat Black china

The Ford F-650 seems like it would be a good candidate for an end of the world scenario when it come to needing power and cargo room this would be a good choice. a downfall of this rig would be the amount of gas it burns. The F-650 would be able to ram through miles of abandoned cars but in the event of a gas shortage it would run out of fuel laving you stranded and wishing for a more eco friendly utility vehicle.

FX-4 Defense SUPER-LIGHTWEIGHT CONCEPT   MOTORCYCLE

The FX-4 From FX Bikes is the worlds lightest adult sized dirt bike/ motorcycle. It has a 125cc engine and only wights 125lbs this is definitely being added to my survival list! That thing is so light I could lift it over a fence myself! It seems like you could take this thing though any kind of terrain and it also looks like it would be really fun!

Believe it or not the VW Beetle makes the list! These tried and true rigs are very easy to work on with their simple air-cooled engine and are also very reliable. I say the most important thing about an end of the world vehicle is the ability to find parts and VW produced around 21.5 Million of them and has the 4th highest production numbers of all time.

Volkswagen XL1 on the road

It has a very low coefficient of drag which helps increase mpgs. It looks really small next to that SUV in the backgrond…

VW XL1

Looks like a mini lambo!!! Love the red!!!

I have doubts that volkswagen will actually sell these vehicles to anyone and instead they will most likely lease them… lets hope not but don’t forget what happened to the EV1… O_o
