‘People in London were left bemused tonight after a ‘flying car’ was spotted travelling over the Thames.’ reports The Mirror.
A helicopter was spotted shortly after 7pm travelling along the route of the Thames carrying a car which had all of its lights on.
Car brand Jaguar have confirmed that the airlift precedes tomorrow’s launch of the company’s ‘baby’ XE sports saloon car at Earls Court.
The bizarre sight led to many Londoners taking to Twitter.
