Vilebrequin, a French car YouTube channel, took a different approach to creating a flying car. They converted an old BMW 5 with sail wings and then drove it at high speed into a jump.
Peter Salzmann from Austria is a base jumping enthusiast who approached BMWi, BMW’s electric propulsion subsidiary, in 2017 with the idea of an electrically powered wingsuit.
The BMW Group has unveiled the world’s first electric winged flying suit to make humanity’s long-cherished dream of flying like birds come true. BMW i division, Designworks and Austrian “flying suit pilot” extreme athlete Peter Salzmann unveiled the innovative technology in a video on November 10, #NEXTGen 2020.
