Indian inventor claims to have made 'flying car'

London , Mon, 14 Feb 2011 ANI

London, Feb 14 (ANI): An Indian inventor, A.K. Vishwanath, has claimed that he has made a flying car with the help of India's first small car, Maruti.


Made out of a seemingly ordinary 800cc Maruti car, it has rotor blades affixed to the roof with extended wheelarches creating a "vacuum section", and has been one of the star attractions at the Aero India 2011 air show in Bangalore.


Maruti, built in the 1980s by Suzuki, and has formed the basis of inventor Vishwanath's dream.


The 52-year-old has spent 16 years working on the "flying Maruti", and claims it has vertical lift-off and he has tested a scale version tested in a wind tunnel, reports the Daily Mail.


So far, he has garnered 40 patents, and told reporters his inspiration came from many sources, including the flying ability of bees. Other engineers are also working on the project.


He told reporters that the car is powered initially by an electrical generator, after which its engine pumps out so-called 'energy flows' which provide lift-off and cruising.


The car was developed by Vishwanath's company, B'Lorean, named after his home of Bangalore and the winged DeLorean sports car of the 1980s, famously used as a time machine in Hollywood' flick 'Back To The Future' series of films.(ANI)
