I think that any Spartan soldiers looking for a beautiful death would gladly strap into this homemade jet-powered go-kart. They would undoubtedly need a way to attach a shield and spear to it.

Power comes from a customized Boeing gas turbine turbojet engine that pushes out 300 pounds of thrust. I bet this thing almost literally flies. I sort of want to ride it, but I worry about tanks of flammable fuel sitting on each side of my wedding tackle. And there’s no Recaro seat or five-point harness here – the seat belt looks like one of those little Velcro jobs your kid uses on their Barbie Power Wheels Jeep.

I’m afraid of this kart, but I really want to ride it at the same time. It can be yours to terrorize the neighborhood with for $10,500 via the Middletown, Maryland edition of Craigslist.
