Los Angeles based Marine Turbine Technologies (MTT) has announced an upgrade to their 320bhp turbine powered MTT Y2K superbike.
It has been reported that the new 2013 MTT Y2K will be fitted with a Rolls-Royce C-20B gas turbine engine, capable of 420bhp.
MTT hope to release the new model in the USA and Europe by mid-2013 as a street legal bike.
The original Y2K was launched in 2000 and powered by a Rolls-Royce Allison Model 250 engine (commonly used in helicopters). Producing 320bhp at 52,000rpm the superbike is able to accelerate from 0-200mph in 5.4 seconds.
Both bikes run on diesel or A1 Jet fuel… if you have any spare.
