Flying car actually flies: KleinVision AirCar completes flight tests

The Slovakian KleinVision AirCar has just passed its first flight tests at Nitra Airport in Slovakia, and in doing so, successfully completed the transition from ground driving mode, to flying and back again. Weighing in at 1100kg, the AirCar is powered by a 104kW 1.6-litre BMW engine and has an estimated range of 1000km, with a maximum cruising speed of around 200km/h. The AirCar requires a runway of just 300m to take off – where, for context, a Cessna 172 light aircraft needs almost 500m.

Around the tracks: Aston Martin is designing houses now

When we’re not creating it ourselves, the CarAdvice team spends a lot of time finding and consuming motoring content from all over the world. Here’s a handful of the photos, articles, videos or social media posts that most caught our eye last week. Some of them are brand new, others have been online for a while. Enjoy them – just not too much, okay? There's nothing quite as frustrating as witnessing some truly terrible parking and not being able to say or do anything about it.
