A jet car is a car propelled by a jet engine. A Jet Dragster is a jet powered car used for drag racing.
 Land speed record
Jet powered cars are commonly used for land speed record attempts, after an FIA rule change that permitted them in 1964.
 Drag racers
Some cars such as Green Monster and Vampire raced as dragsters (as well as also achieving or attempting land speed records).
In 2006, while filming an episode for the series Top Gear, presenter and driver Richard Hammond was critically injured in a crash with the jet dragster, Vampire, that he was piloting.
