Next Big Thing – super-efficient mini aircraft

An aeroplane with better fuel efficiency than a car? Take that, tiny inner city rollers

A Spy drone? Nice.

Not quite. The Synergy aircraft is actually a five-seater plane which features a car-beating fuel efficiency of 40 miles per gallon. That's ten times better fuel economy than a small regular jet meaning it's the ideal solution for millionaires who're looking to save a few pennies.

Why so efficient?

It's all about the design. CNC-machiend carbon fibre makes up the light aerodynamic body, which does a great job to reduce drag. The Synergy also packs a propellor engine as opposed to a jet one, which helps to increase fuel efficiency.

I'll never be able to afford this, will I?

Your finances are entirely your business, but we do know that the Synergy is currently looking for funding on Kickstarter, with a target fund of US$65,000. As for its final price tag? We're too scared to ask.
