Chitty Chitty Bang Bang 2008

Thanks to Claes-Fredrik for pointing me at another toy I can’t afford! This is supposedly the world’s first viable flying car – well, flying buggy, really – but they’re planning to ‘drive’ it from London to Timbuktu to prove it works.

More information in this Times article, and more pictures on the expedition’s website.
