It was the great Sir Isaac Newton that invented the jet-powered car. Newton forecast that one day people would travel at 50 miles an hour. In 1680 a man named Gravesande designed a car that would be powered by Newton's third law of motion - "To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction."
