Meet Insanity – Canada’s Only Jet-Propelled Garage Built Ferrari Enzo

Published July 12, 2016

If you are a car-enthusiast then you’ve probably already heard stories about people strapping jet engines to sports cars. This concept has been going on for half a century. At the beginning, the jet-propelled sports cars were used by stuntmen who wanted to break world records. Over the years, this idea became interesting to lots of people, but not many of them actually decided on going on with it.

There are a number of reasons why you should give up if you’re thinking about making your own jet-car. First of all, it’s far from being safe. Jet engines, as their name hints, are meant for jets. This means that if you’re not careful, you could burn down your garage. On top of that, even if you manage to make it work, there’s no guarantee that your car will endure such speed. Average cars are designed to have a top speed of about 150 mph. In fact, the fastest production car in the world, Bugatti Veyron has a top speed of 268 mph. These jet engines make the car capable of over 400 mph.

None of this mattered to a Canadian inventor, Ryan McQueen. Despite being a total amateur, he decided to make his dream come true and made a jet-propelled sports car. He bought two Rolls-Toys jet engines and mounted them onto a Ferrari Enzo inspired build. This process wasn’t simple – it took 12 years and nearly $100,000 Canadian. In fact, McQueen even had to sell his Corvette in order to finance this project.

Probably the most impressive fact about this whole project is that Ryan McQueen is not a mechanic. In fact, he didn’t even know how to use the welding machine at the beginning. Still, despite many problems, this self-thought constructor managed to build an impressive jet-car, which he appropriately named “Instanity”.
