I stumbled across this car. We thought just doing a battery-electric was challenging. (Looking a bit further I saw the builders were into gas turbines a fair bit).
You NEED sound.

Johny,
I have no reason to disbelieve this one but I would also point out that you could have one of your own with a gas tank and gas exhaust as with this car, a video of the event and any appropriate soundtrack.

Personally, I would have mine start with a sonic boom :)

Have a look at the build blog. I definitely think it's real.
Performance isn't that impressive (well it wasn't when they were using 4 BLDC motors chain coupled) but it's a great experiment.
