Motivated by the idea that “our dreams of today are the reality of tomorrow” and his quest to create the flying cars of his boyhood imagination, french photographer Renaud Marion developed the unique concept for his Air Drive series. Surreal images with a blend of retro style and futuristic imaginings. Iconic cars from the glory days of automobile production are transformed into airborne transport, catapulting their vintage design into a visionary age.
Taking cues from his childhood imaginings and inspired by science fiction films and artists, Marion depicts his vision of futuristic transportation of wheel-less cars serenely suspended above the ground. But he has included a neat twist: While the vehicles’ levitation most definitely smacks of sci-fi, the cars are in fact modified vintage classics, including Chevrolets, Mercedes, Jaguars, Aston Martins and Porsches.
