Halo Interceptor - Car that Turns into Plane, Chopper and Boat


Philip Pauley is a British engineer that designed a concept car that can turn into an airplane, helicopter or motorboat.

The engineer named his creation Halo Interceptor. The design already managed to win various awards and was also called by 100 Cute "sexy enough on its own just being a car". The Top Speed wrote that the Halo is a car that is "straight out of a sci-fi movie."

But Pauley wants his vehicle to be considered not as a flying car but a "road legal airplane, helicopter and motor cruiser."

"[It] comprises a car component - the 'Interceptor' - and three connecting housings, Halo 120, Halo 46 and Halo 22," explained the engineer.

It is worth mentioning that the 4-seater car features a hybrid engine, 4-wheel drive and can reach a top speed of 311mph (500kph). Halo Interceptor also boasts acceleration from 0 to 62mph in 2.3 seconds and can register a range of 700 miles (1,127 km), informs Gizmag.

When attached to Halo 120, the vehicle transforms into an airplane powered by two turbofan engines that help the jet reach a top speed of Mach 2, being able to fly at an altitude of 66,000 feet (20,117 meters).

When connected to the Halo 46 attachment, the vehicle becomes a helicopter that can reach a top speed of 185 knots, flying at an altitude of 15,000 feet (4,572 meters).

Finally the Halo 22 attachment transforms the car into a powerboat that can run at a speed of 55-63 knots.
