eBay flying car auction Q&A

Funny stuff. Lots more where these came from.

Q: Does it come with a Flux Capacitor or similar?

A: The M400X prototype is powered by eight, internal combustion rotary engines, driving two fans that counter-rotate in each of the four ducted-fan nacelles. The engine was invented by Dr. Felix Wankel in the 1950s. We acquired our rotary engine design and proprietary information from Outboard Marine Corporation OMC and have further refined the charge-cooled rotor design to provide more power and operate at higher temperatures.

Q: You have no idea how excited I am about this vehicle! For some time now I have been tormented by my conscience and only now after seeing this auction realise my true destiny! The streets of Cheadle Heath, Stockport, England have been taken over by scum and filth and need cleaning up!...

A: The downwash air temperature of the M400X prototype is only about 4 degrees higher than ambient conditions. Hope this doesn't put a crimp in your plans.

Q: is it possible to fit parking sensors to assist with landing in shopping centres (the misses wrote of my mk1 golf like that) thank you

A: The M400X prototype does contain a number of sensors, but none specifically for that purpose...
