    Why is there fire spewing from the engine of the beetle? Looks like its a jet engine or something....I can't see how that is road legal?

    It has a normal engine it can drive on and also has a rolls royce jet engine. The starter for the Jet Engine has a sticker under it stating "For Show Use Only" which bypasses the legal bit on the MOT.

    We do the same thing when fitting air horns as they are illegal for road use too.

    Heres a pic of the car.
