Is it a car or is it a jet or a boat for that matter? Hmm… It’s actually a combination of all of the above and more! The Halo Intersceptor is straight out of a sci-fi movie and gives us a glimpse of what is surely to be the future of human transport.

UK-based concept designer, Philip Pauley, says his mad machine can morph from a car to a jet, helicopter, or a boat. The idea is based on adding bolt-on parts and accessories to the base car and saying a few magic words (although we’re not clear on what those are just yet!). The space-age design features much-loved gull-wing doors, a 0-100km/h sprint time of 2.3 seconds, and a top speed of 498km/h before running out of steam, all with a range of over 1100 kms. As futuristic as it may appear, the "car" actually looks like the lovechild of an Aston Martin (front) and a Bugatti Veyron (rear). The base cockpit is described as “a four seater USB stick that is designed to outperform any private vehicle on earth,” according to the press release.

From the comfort of the cockpit, the operator can call upon any one of the three Halo attachments: Halo 120, Halo 46, and Halo 22. The Halo 120 converts the vehicle into a private jet that can climb over 25,000 feet a minute, the Halo 46 is a helicopter with a seating capacity for four, and the Halo 22 is a 36-foot-long powerboat with a race-bred double hull and an engine you can throttle up to a Donzi-slapping 63 knots.

How all these parts and accessories come together is still a mystery, but who cares?! We love it! Oh and Philip, we’d love to know the recreational activities it takes to dream up ideas like these! Share!

If there’s a competition for a weirdest production I would say that this is definitely the winner!hehehe Its better to less consider this vehicle for its juts a lame concept! I doubt that it will sell!

Hell! I guess it would be better if they will make this car as a concept. It really looks like a submarine and I wonder who would want to drive this car in the road. I bet this will just cause traffic in the street.

Looks like this one is inspired from space movies. Just kidding. The colors seem to be more attractive and blend with the concept. However, too much of the combination will make it too loud.

Does Halo Intersceptor is still a concept or in production already? But its a good concept though. This one is really a futuristic and I thought i could only see this on sci fi movies. Nice job!

Wow! It looks like an outerspace car model. I like the color white which fitted to it well.

Here here. Furthermore, I think they have lots more to think about in their lineup before they spend money on this. A 7/S-Class/LS/A8 competitor comes to mind for one.
