We know that accessorizing a RZR is one thing (and we’re all for upping performance), but this is a little crazy. What do you think? Are you all about tricking out a ride to push limits, or would you rather see it modded with something a bit more traditional?
Just when we thought we’d seen it all, we came across this little gem:
Apparently there’s a guy named Paul Stender who converted a stock Polaris RZR XP 900 into a jet. Seriously. A JET FRIGGIN’ ENGINE.
Made by the guys at The Indy Boys (you can check ‘em out at TheIndyBoys.com), this UTV is highly customized with an engine that was formerly in a Sikorsky Helicopter. It’s a GE T58 Jet Engine that comes packed with 2,000 HP and can push this vehicle to speeds above 200 MPH. Seriously nuts stuff here, folks.
For us, it can go either way – we love seeing what people can do with new technology and a little ingenuity. It’s what makes some of the best side by side parts and accessories come to market (think things like Bad Dawg plows, Sno Cobra UTV ski and track systems, etc.) But, at the same time, we’re all about safety and um, yeah, this looks a little dangerous.
Just look at those flames. Wow. Just….wow.
Don’t try this at home, kids.
