“Mendiola’s ‘flying car’ set the internet abuzz a couple months ago and attracted the interest of Star 8, an Australian company specializing in electric vehicles.

Current plans call for an electric manned aerial vehicle to be launched with seating for up to two passengers and a combined weight of 200 kg (440 lbs). If the vehicle sees the light of day, it will be called the ‘Future 8’,” reports Car Scoops.
