This is the Subaru Air Mobility, the latest concept vehicle unveiled by the Japanese automaker.

We can’t help but notice the similarities between this and a fidget spinner.

Unveiled at this year’s Japan Mobility Show in Tokyo, the Subaru Air Mobility Concept is a car, but also an eVTOL.

The company hasn’t said anything about the sort of powertrain it uses, but we’re fairly confident it’ll be some form of electricity.

It has five rotors in total.

Two of the rotors are located at the back, and there are three more at the front.

Mind you, some might argue that four of these rotors are actually on the side, with an additional rotor located right in front of the driver’s cockpit.

Speaking of which, there are no pictures of the interior.

However, based on the size of the vehicle, the Subaru Air Mobility probably has two seats only as it doesn’t look particularly spacious.

At the end of the day, this is Subaru’s idea of a flying car.

Supercar Blondie’s Tobias Waters was able to see this amazing concept in person at Japan Mobility Show and it’s even crazier than it looks in the pictures.

Even though flying cars aren’t a thing yet, we do have eVTOLs, which are basically the same thing.

The name is an acronym that stands for Vertical Take-Off Landing, and the ‘e’ stands for electric.

As the name suggests, they’re designed to take off, and land, on the spot, without needing a runway.

Some of these eVTOLs have wheels and can be driven as a car, but that’s the exception.

Generally speaking, an eVTOL has a lot more common with a helicopter than it does with a car.

As for the Subaru Air Mobility, well, we can’t stop thinking about fidget spinners.
