Looks mean and definitely unusual, but is it front wheel drive? And how does it steer?

I had always thought this would have been a brilliant powerplant idea for a street machine.

It is an Allison V-3420. Essentially two Allison v-12 engines using a common crankcase. Quite a few were produced for the P-75, which was canceled after the turbojet engine was proven to be a much better powerplant.

Nice build. I would have coupled two engines and run one differential per axle like the original. But still cool looking the way you did it. B)
