Behold the Aston Martin Volante Vision Concept Aircraft – a VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) short-hop ‘urban aircraft’ concept offering a glimpse of the auto manufacturer’s designs on the luxury aerospace market.

Supported by Cranfield Aerospace Solutions and the Rolls Royce aircraft engine company, the plane has a central propellor providing vertical lift with two smaller engines for horizontal motion.

      pah! more Waitrose than Tesco I’d say

      (waiting patiently on that getting announced for somewhere along the D4/D6 belt…until then we’re not truly back baby)

        in fairness – if you had the disposable income for one of those – then the staff will be arranging the shopping

          now, to me, the only reason why you’d want that much cash is to rub other peoples noses in it. taking it to ascot or somewhere just doesn’t garner the same satisfaction as parking it on mountjoy square and paying a young lad a score to mind it.

            My brother in law thought he’d be clever by leaving his german shepherd in the car instead of paying the local scobes “minding money”, to which their response was “Does your dog out fires, does he?”

    Why is it a Volante? Aston reserve this name for convertibles. Seems a bit reckless to take this thing for a spin with the roof off.
