As the flying car truly takes off as we move through 2024, this stunning design by automotive designer, Pierpaolo Lazzarini, is proof that, when it comes to flying cars, the sky’s the limit.

Also as the minds behind this shark-inspired $1 billion superyacht that’s so big you need vehicle to get around – it was always going to wow.

The Air Car is a massive six meters long (19.7 feet) and seats a pilot with up to three passengers.

Its ultra-light carbon monocoque includes four rotatable Rolls-Royce jet engines in a 4×4 system.

Each of those engines is able to work independently, adjusting both their inclination and rotation for stability and maneuverability.

This allows Lazzarini‘s Air Car to maneuver on variable heights.

The trim is inclined depending on the speed, which peaks at an estimated 750 km/h (466 mph).

That allows for an estimated autonomy of 1,200 kilometers (746 miles) of jet fuel.
