The Jetsons imagined a future from the perspective of the 1960s, and of course back then the expectation was that one day we’d all be driving flying cars. I mean, duh, right? But what if we turned the past and future inside out, and in fact some of our most beloved cars from days gone by were really gravity-defying floating rides? That’s just what French artist Renaud Marion has envisioned in his collection entitled Air Drive.
Like some GoodYear executive’s nightmare, Marion’s vision is a tireless world, filled with beautiful vehicles picked from the ’50s through the ’80s, and matched with stark modernistic urban architecture. It’s pretty brilliant, and now I really want a floating 300SL.
