1963 Chrysler Turbine

This 1963 Chrysler Turbine (painted beautifully in Turbine Orange) is one of three remaining in working order.  It is powered by a real gas turbine, and would sound a bit like a vacuum cleaner when running.  You can fuel it with anything that burns.

The only sort of land vehicles that use gas turbines these days are tanks like the M1 Abrams. One of the persistent disadvantages of this type of power source is high fuel consumption.
