There is a fantastic story that dates from the turn of the century. Back then aviation pioneer Alberto Santos-Dumont would parade his new fangled Airship by hovering at roof level along the boulevards of Paris.

Then when he’d utterly freaked the passing Parisians out he would tie the ship up and pop into his favourite restaurant for lunch.

Hopefully one day we will all be floating roof level above the streets of cities in our personal airships. Until then though here is a selection of various other modes of transport – most of which are for sale – which are utterly bizarre, but would be huge amounts of fun.

Batmobile £120,000

From the sublime... This is a replica Batmobile that not only works - you can drive it like a real car - but also is stacked out with Batman related accessories and goodies. So you can fire up its working rocket exhaust flamethrower, activate its opening roll top dashboard doors, ignite its flashing red beacon and loads more. Oh, and there's also a Batphone. I don't have a clue as to how fast the car can go, but I would have thought that for £120k it would be a sporty little number. Batmobile
