We really don't know where to begin with this one. We thought we'd seen every conceivable form of motivation, then this comes along and it seems to defy description. The video is courtesy of Streetfire.net, who contends that beneath all that pimperific body work, lives a water-propelled, jet-powered Peugeot 206. Our minds are reeling in an attempt to understand the technical hurdles of such a vehicle. Check the video, then speculate in 'comments'.

      14, the page linking to the vid translates (via bablefish) as: Pascal DRAGOTTO presents his new creation, the 206 ROCKET BUS. Prototype developing 15000 Cv, with for only carburizing water! Engine developped at the point by NASA, based on the adiabatic pressure drop of overheated water with 250°C.

      "...to understand the technical hurdles of such a vehicle."

      Well, the technical details were easily understood 70 years ago;

      water propelled jet powered?
      after reading this, i forgot wot jet powered actually means.
      so wot does it mean?

      i think this vehicle is for use underwater.
      would love to see something like that in real life(not just the james bond esprit)

      Either pressurized or it could be high concentration H202 or hydrogen peroxide reacting with silver or some other metal and essentially boiling on contact.

      Oh man, That thing will put out a fire in a snap.

      it probably has sealed boiler, heating the water to above 100C (but the increased pressure wont let it boil), and when the valve is opened, the super-heated water instantly boils (flash boils) to release a lot of energy at once.

      Take a large sealed tank of water, heat it to 250C (482F). Punch a hole in it, Voilà water rocket.
