Flying Cars: Aston Martin to Toyota, who's making them

A look at the major companies who are getting into the flying car business

Not even James Bond had an Aston Martin like this.

The British sports car maker revealed a concept version of a flying car, the Volante Vision Concept, at the Farnborough Airshow this week.

Aston Martin has billed the futuristic vehicle as a luxury car for the skies. The autonomous hybrid-electric vehicle, which has room for three passengers, is designed for urban and inter-city travel, the company said. It’s also capable of vertical take-offs and landings. The vehicle could fly at top speeds of around 200 miles per hour, according to Reuters.

“With the population in urban areas continuing to grow, congestion in towns and cities will become increasingly demanding,” Aston Martin President and CEO Dr. Andy Palmer said in a news release. “We need to look at alternative solutions to reduce congestion, cut pollution and improve mobility. Air travel will be a crucial part in the future of transportation; the Volante Vision Concept is the ultimate luxury mobility solution.”
