The Lakester is 16 feet long and was inspired by the world's first cruise missile, the German V-1. While it looks like it used to set records, it was built to be a show car—a driving work of art—but it can shoot six-foot flames out its tailpipe.

Bidding starts at $27,000 here, with a Buy It Now cost of $36,000. That's a pretty low price to have the most interesting looking car on the block. 


Brett Williams is an editorial assistant at Supercompressor and he's looking into putting a jet engine in his own car.
