That's just some sort of crazy science fiction.
From 1938 actually....


And although the engine is the biggest, it is not the most powerful one.

More like a bull whip where just the tip goes sonic but the innards are moving more slowly

I was in a western act once as the dummy where the cowboy snapped the whip several times for effect and then lashed out at me and wrapped it around my body before the sonic tip finished up the wrap now much slower
