The Hover Coupe Flying car concept

The Hover Coupe concept futuristic flying car, inspired by a classic Italian Isotta Fraschini.

Hover Coupe flying car that ‘maintains the soft lines of the 40’s,’ designed by Lazzarini Design Studio, features light carbon body structure, measures 4500mm in length.

Similar to a drone in the maneuverability, the Hower-coupè could reach, hypothetically, an estimated top speed of 550km/h.

To facilitate the stability of the vehicle while flying, additional adjustable flaps are located below the chassis of the jet car.

    A thought:

    If it could be managed without undue adverse impact on thrust-to-weight ratio, perhaps introduce two retractable wheels at center-line, for ground operation.

    Less complex and heavy than a four-wheel configuration, less slippy-skiddy than simple ground effect via the fans (though one might just drop onto the wheels when one needs to corner, and skim on the straightaways).

    The vehicle would be gyroscopically (and, at need, *propulsively*) stabilized, and consume much less fuel on the deck (handy when one has wrung the last bit of safe flight time out of the vehicle, but still needs to get to a recharging station).

    This design is the stuff of *poetry!*

    Please be assured (FWIW) that, in the risibly-unlikely event that my book should ever be optioned for a screenplay, I will most *ASSUREDLY* be in touch!

    Well-met!!

    Tobias.
