Indian inventor, A.K. Vishwinath has joined up with Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson with the invention of a car that flies.
The vertical lift off, achieved through rotating blades designed by bumble bees who have studied mathematics for years, enables the car to soar over traffic jams. Clarkson said he 'didn't give a fart' for lazy, feckless Mexican scientists who questioned the ability of the car - an 800cc Maruti - to fly, declaring:'I am backing this scheme and I could be driving and piloting this magnificent vehicle for a special Top Gear presentation from India.'
Bumble bee enthusiasts, who have long known of the bees matematical gifts, are insisting that the bees should be given credit for the invention and Vishwinath is ready to acknowledge their help: 'Without bumble bees we could never have taken off.'
In fact the vehicle is yet to rise into the air and there are thought to be problems with landing. But Clarkson remains enthusiastic about the project.
'I am so certain that this will work I am giving my assistant Richard Hammond, the first opportunity to drive and fly this Maruti.' Hammond was unavailable for comment but sources close to him considered that their man would be up for the task. He canot see how anything could go wrong.
