The Geneva Motor Show is famous for showcasing stunning supercars, like the Italdesign vehicle so distinctive that only five will be made in 2017.

The car’s V10 engines will rocket the auto to 60 mph in a small around a few seconds.

Italdesign unveiled a little something else on Wednesday that actually flies. As in, actually, it flies.

It’s a idea vehicle created in co-procedure with European plane company Airbus (EADSF). It seems to be a little bit like a Clever auto. The style and design resembles a ball using on a four-wheeled chassis.

Then you can find a different big drone. If the auto will get caught in major traffic, the drone arrives overhead, can fly down, connect alone to the roof of the auto, and select up the ball-formed passenger compartment.

The car’s autonomously pushed chassis can then poke its way along to a charging station while the travellers, now using in an autonomously pushed helicopter, fly off to their place.

“Including the 3rd dimension to seamless multi-modal transportation networks will with no a question boost the way we live and how we get from A to B,” said Mathias Thomsen, common supervisor for City Air Mobility at Airbus

The concept is the autos will be shared by customers. They would be summoned by an Uber-like app and would be smart ample to come to a decision when it really is much more advantageous to generate or fly from just one location to a different. The automobiles and big drones would roam about on their have choosing up people and dropping them off as wanted.

Both businesses say they are at present performing to make these autos a truth.
