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.

This is the Aston Martin Lagonda Vision Concept – step one in the creation of what Aston Martin modestly describes as ‘the world’s first zero emission luxury brand’.

With an all-electric powertrain and 640km range, the vehicle has a massive interior with retractable steering wheel and up-and-out swinging doors for ease of access.

Production is due to start by 2021.

A fully restored 1961 Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato formerly driven by Formula One World Champion Jim Clark, who pitted it against legendary rival, the Ferrari 250GT at Le Mans, Goodwood and the Paris 1000km between 1961 and 1962*.

A unique piece of racing history, currently accepting bids from prospective buyers. 

(*The Ferraris won every single time, but still.)
