Aston Martin’s first flying car will arrive in 2020 – Aston Martin
Technology advances by leaps and bounds, yes, but not as much as we would like. Cinema and futuristic series are to blame for all of us dreaming about flying, reaching space on an ordinary flight or feeding ourselves with just one pill.
If with the topic gastro and space travel we will still have to wait a little longer, as far as flying is concerned we are a little closer. Goodbye to traffic jams, pollution and boring trips. Both VTC companies and luxury firms have already taken another step in creating different prototypes of flying cars. No, we can not fly like birds, but mounted on an Aston Martin in the style of James Bond.
Andy Plamer, president and CEO of Aston Martin, explained that this idea arises because “with the population in urban areas increasing, traffic and traffic jams in cities will be increasingly demanding. We need to find alternative solutions to reduce bottlenecks, reduce pollution and improve mobility. Air travel will be crucial in the future of transport, and the Aston Martin Volante Vision Concept is the ultimate luxury mobility solution. ”
The British luxury company is developing this model with Cranfield University, Cranfield Aerospace Solutions and Rolls Royce. A VTOL aircraft – detachment and vertical landing – reminiscent of a fighter plane, but with all kinds of details and luxury accessories.
