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.
Sealander Schwimmcaravan £15,000
Need a caravan? Want a boat? Well this bizarre German made vehicle combines both in one. You can use it as a normal towed caravan and it comes with a cooking-washing module, cooler, heater, table and two benches that can be converted to enlarge the deck area. However if you get near water - lakes and rivers rather than the sea - you roll it out to the water and float away propelled by a 5hp electric motor. Schwimmcaravan
