lazzarini design studio believes in thinking about the future while never forgetting the past, which is exemplified in its ‘hover coupé’. the two-person futuristic vehicle measures 4,500 mm in length, making it similar to a compact car for scale. the hover coupé turns by releasing air inside its turbines, while the position of the jet engines also give it drone-like maneuverability. to stabalize the car in flight, the italian studio has fitted it with adjustable flaps below the chassis. according to the studio, these jets could allow the hover coupé to reach speeds exceeding 550 km/h (342 mph). like all flying car’s found in science fiction films, this design exercise will almost certainly never make reality, and will remain only at a concept phase. still, lazzarini’s renderings can serve to inspire manufacturer’s designers to take greater risks, to design truly dramatic and mesmerizing modes of transportation.

  • Nice in design, theory and concept only. Mainly because any fool or madman can get a driver’s licence now and be a hazard on the road. Imagine a lunatic/drunk driver flying one of these…or the cloud of dirt, dust and metro city filth this would produce. Or the number of shorts, skirts and umbrellas this would turn inside out. And yet, it would make a marvelously obnoxious leaf blower to irritate the neighbors with!
