Peterbilt Jettruck,......awesome!!!!

This former Canadian truck has put on quite a show in Europe. This is a Peterbilt 359 from 1987, his engine is a Caterpillar with 550 HP. The turbine will give him an awesome boost of 12.000HP, this engine has come out of a Phantom F4 Jetplane! It uses about 400 litres of kerosine in 5 minutes and bringing this truck up to a speed of 250 kmh. Brake distance (not less important!) is about 3000 feet (1000 meter!). Is this a beauty or not???? Here is a link to the drivers website:
