Is that the jet car that the lady TV celebrity died in?
No that was Jessy Combs "the fastest women on 4 wheels" in the American Eagle rocket powered car up in Oregon. Her car lost brakes, primary and secondary shoots before running out of lakebed at speed.
This was Rob Freyvogel, as of monday he was still in a coma.
/driver-who-crashed-doing-over-400-mph-at-salt-flats-still-in-coma the artical said the crash happened between 420-450mph theire aim was the fastest piston powered wheel driven running in 496 AA/BFS (AA=502+CI B= Blowen/FORCED INDUCTION F=FUEL other than gas/diesel S= Streamliner)

Yikes!

My son's friend holds four motorcycle records (350cc) at 100mph.

edit:
Sorry [not sorry] I can't let go on the Audi off-road vehicle. A similar vehicle that has pontoon fenders for on-road:

https://phys.org/news/2015-02-ntu-un...-d-concept.html

Another that uses the wind-split sides and pontoons, but ditches the wheels


https://www.designboom.com/technolog...ar-10-30-2017/

Would the side wind-split keep the upper windows clear of mud and debis? That'd be an aerodynamic feature.

As I recall it was a black-and-white picture. Once again I'd like to see a 50/50 morph between the Volhahart-Saggitta V2 and (in this case) the Disco Volante.

The red bike says Colani. Not surprised.
