1951 Rover Jet 1 Gas Turbine Car

Document Actions
In 1951, the Rover company experimented with a gas turbine-driven roadster. It was a simple cycle machine (non-regernative cycle) and thus suffered for its gas mileage. Later models used a heat exchanger to recover the exhaust heat to pre-heat the gases going into the combustor. This concept improved mileage considerably.
