Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - GEAR -

To be clear, we’re not go­ing to see the Air­bus Pop.Up in pro­duc­tion any­time soon. This is very much a con­cept. How­ever, it is worth in­clud­ing in the list for a cou­ple of rea­sons. Firstly, it isn’t just a draw­ing. A real con­cept has been built, though it’s not a work­ing pro­to­type. Sec­ond, it has been cre­ated by Air­bus and Italde­sign. When a large air­plane man­u­fac­turer pens a fly­ing car, you know the idea is gain­ing trac­tion. Air­bus is a com­pany with the means to get into the fly­ing-car busi­ness. On the down­side, it’s not very cool. It’s es­sen­tially a taxi. But we love the drone-like ro­tor idea.
