This airbike design by Ukrainian design studio Alexander Shevchenko has a vintage-inspired look, but it focuses on future-forward aspects like environmental and economic efficiency. This single-seated aircraft allows its pilot to steer on land using pedals in style -- its orange exterior is one-winged, resembling an old school plane, but it is completely revamped with contemporary features.

Used for recreational flying, an airbike is the ultimate glider when it comes to efficiency. It's a rather recent concept in the aircraft industry; its objective aligns well with the green movement because it uses less fuel. This airbike would be perfect for those who have an appreciation for vintage auto styles, but also conscious of technical factors.
