Jet-Powered Batmobile is the Flattest Car Ever

Illustration for article titled Jet-Powered Batmobile is the Flattest Car Ever

This crazy, crazy "Flatmobile" is going to enter the Guinness books as the flattest vehicle ever. How flat is it? Nineteen inches. I think that's about how flat we'd be if we laid on our backs (depending on what's on our minds and what we ate for lunch). Not only is this Batmobile-like contraption dangerous, it's extremely dangerous—creator Perry Watkins shoved a gas turbine jet engine on the butt. It's also supposedly street legal, but we wouldn't want to be in it during a rollover. Or when the jet turbine catches fire because the AFTERBURNER FAILED. See that video after the jump.

I don't know that you would be that likely to be in a roll over, seeing as the center of gravity is only 9 or so inches off the ground.

What would be much more likely is to be involved in a 2 car accident, which would likely result in the other car, especially if it is an SUV of any kind, simply driving over the top of you. Of course, that would make you the PERFECT driver for the flattest car, you being the flattest driver.
