description: The jet-air car, professor McClaine's brainchild of the Seventies. His own car — unique in appearance and performance. Air-borne, the car can travel at 300 m.p.h. and can rise to 2,000 feet. On the ground, the car is capable of 200 m.p.h., in the water it can reach a top speed of 70 knots. It is made of heat resistant plastic zodium and indestructable plutonium alloy.
