Turbine-powered MR2

Now, if you saw the picture above in isolation, you'd be forgiven for thinking that it was some kind of half-arsed BarryBoys nightmare. But in fact, this MR2 has been subject to something a little more radical than the usual styling and performance tweaks; it's sacrificed its sweet mid-engined setup for a pair of MASSIVE FRICKIN' JET ENGINES. Seriously.
It was listed recently on eBay, where the seller came out with the beautifully understated 'I think it's street legal except for this little excessive noise issue'. See the video below for an idea of what kind of noise these turbines make...
