We've seen some pretty wild drag cars in the past, but this one almost certainly takes the cake. It's a jet-engined dragster capable of a five-second quarter-mile time at over 300 mph. It is truly a spectacle to watch.

The dragster, "Fire Force 5," is equipped with a Pratt & Whitney J60 turbojet engine capable of producing a maximum of 5500 pounds of thrust.
