The production petrol engine mounted up front drives the front wheels. It allows owners to drive this car legally in the city.

Its rear-mounted General Electric jet engine from a helicopter provides an additional 1350 horsepower.

Inside, the Beetle retains its stock appearance with the only addition being a new set of jet engine gauges surrounding the steering wheel.
