C5-Blast Ultimate Go-Kart

Holy crap, this all-electric fan assisted go-kart can supposedly hit 0-60 in 1.5 seconds. That’s fast as hell and makes me wonder what that does to the person driving it. Can you hold the wheel straight in that kind of acceleration? I desperately want to find out for myself. Unfortunately, this go-kart costs $60,000. It’s powered by a 10-kW brushless motor and flanked by four electric ducted fans that provide forward thrust, further boosting the speed and reducing drag. There are four more fans around the cockpit providing 212 lbs. of upward thrust. Incredible. Pop some wings on this thing and let me rocket across Tattoine¬†with a nutty old mentor so I can get my adventure on.

Get it.
