DeLorean Flying Car

DeLorean was one of the first cars we saw take off in film, via the 1980s classic, Back to the Future II. Apparently, they're making that far-fetched notion a reality.

Paul DeLorean, the nephew of John DeLorean, founder of the short-lived automaker, launched DeLorean Aerospace back in 2012 to develop a flying car, reprots WIRED

The latest project, dubbed the DR-7, is a flying car. The two-seater aircraft will provide personal transport, and sports a set of four wings and a pair of winglets under the two in the rear.

So far, DeLorean has created a concept model 30 feet long and 18.5 feet in width, with a working prototype scheduled to be completed by end of 2018, with test-flights to follow soon after.

Further details are unknown, but DeLorean Aerospace hopes to achieve flying at a higher altitude than previous flying car projects.
