Jet-powered Lamborghini Countach fails to launch on Swedish ice

Oh hello, Swedish steel frame-Lamborghini with a Boeing 553 gas turbine converted to jet propulsion. How's it going? Oh, you were at Orsa Speed Weekend? Sorry things didn't work out. We'll be rooting for you next year.

The morning after a late night of troubleshooting by the car's builder and crew, and subsequent work on a voltage problem in the master control unit and a vexingly low exhaust temperature, the jet-fired Lambo rolled to the line. The crowd tensed, wondering what to expect when the thrust-ghini hit the ice strip. Then, it was over. a frustrated crew rolled the Lambo back from the line. Maybe next year.
