Inventor, Perry Watkins, imported the 1958 Volkswagen truck from Oklahoma and has spent five years working on the crazy creation - which included securing a 5,000 brake horse-power fighter jet engine on the back of it. Perry recently tested the hybrid vehicle, dubbed Oklahoma Willy, for the first time at Santa Pod raceway and the incredible footage has since gone viral - racking up more than one million views online. Amazingly the jet-powered truck, which Perry spent £50,000 masterminding, is completely road legal thanks to the standard engine hidden in the boot.
