Measuring 6 meters in length, the air car is a flying car concept.The ultra light carbon monocoque incorporates four rotatable Rolls-Royce jet engines.
The cabin is more spacious than on current VTOLs, offering seating for four people, the driver included, and panoramic views thanks to wraparound glazing. Even the roof and the butterfly doors are all-glass.
Each jet engine can independently adjust the inclination and rotation of itself, guaranteeing stability and a high maneuverability in turning.
Due to the inclination/rotation of the jet engines (4×4 system) the air car maneuver on variable heights and inclines his trim depending on the cruising speed needs.
The vehicle can accommodate 1 pilot and 3 passengers with an estimated top speed of 750 Km/h for an estimated autonomy of 1200 kilometers (jet fuel).
Each of the four Rolls-Royce jet engines of the aircraft conceived by Lazzarini will be able to independently adjust its inclination and rotation, guaranteeing stability and great manoeuvrability.
There are currently no plans to bring the AirCar into production, it remains just a concept. But Pierpaolo Lazzarini, founder of the studio, hopes to build a full-scale prototype by 2024, before launching the product on the market.
