Global research (including two customer clinics in America and China) also demonstrated that over 40 per cent of customers travel with rear seat passengers at least once a week. This data has been used to develop the latest iteration of the new four door grand tourer, focusing on the driver experience whilst retaining a cabin space that combines exquisite luxury with integrated latest-generation technology.The Flying Spur V8 offers a more driver-centric experience via increased agility and a more characterful engine note, whilst benefiting from increased range between fuel stops and a reduction in CO2 emissions.

It went on display at the Geneva International Motor Show on Tuesday. The three-wheel vehicle doubles as a gyrocopter, deploying fully-retractable rotors. The PAL V Liberty will use one engine for road driving and a separate one for flying. It's actually certified to fly under the rules of both the EASA in Europe and the FAA in the U.S., and complies with road safety regulations.
