The best prototype of a flying car I’ve seen. Besides the one from Flubber of course.
Specifically, the PAL-V is a car and a gyroplane combined, capable of both an air and ground speed of 112mph and a sub 8.0sec 0-60mph time. It can be flown in Europe with a Recreational Pilot Licence or a Private Pilot Licence, while a plain old driving licence is all you need to take the PAL-V out on the roads.
And don’t think that just because it can fly, they’ve made it drive like one of Hannibal’s elephants. The PAL-V features the same Dynamic Vehicle Control system used on the Carver ONE that Hammond drove in Top Gear Series 2, Episode 9.
Basically, the car tilts into corners like a motorcycle, the aggression of your steering input determining the angle of lean. It looks fun. And then when you get to your airfield, or quiet stretch of the M1, out come the propeller and the rotor and you’re up, up and away.

This is a pretty gnarly Willys Jeep Station Wagon; looks like the body is dropped on a newer chassis (good eye, Dad). Spotted in San Diego, CA.
The economy has affected everyone. But of these down and out chimney sweeps, it’s the least of their worries.
