TMC Dumont Aircraft Engine-Powered Motorcycle

Often, we’ll come across concept vehicle and are left wondering what could possibly have been going on inside the builder’s head. With the bonkers TMC Dumont concept motorcycle, however, we’ve got a pretty good idea, since it was made by retired F1 driver, Tarso Marquez. That is to say: he wanted it to go fast.

We’ve seen motorcycles built around car engines before, but this takes it to a whole new level, as this bad boy is powered by a 300-horsepower Rolls-Royce helicopter engine (yes, you read that right). And that means it’s got enough power to send your eyeballs into the back of your skull. Even crazier: that engine sits between two massive Tron-esque 36″ hubless wheels – giving the whole thing a strange retro-futuristic vibe. As insane as it is, this thing also happened to be ambitious enough to win best in show at this year’s Daytona Bike Week – giving credence to what, by all accounts, makes very little logical sense as a motor vehicle. One thing’s for sure, though: we love this monstrosity.
