Needs retractable landing gear.

That's definitely odd, and maybe not so practical for our modern standards, but looks cool.

Probably because it's hot AF with the canopy closed...

Would make for an interesting pure road car.

The only way to "one up" this design is water landing/take off or hovercraft mode.

There is also a twin engine concept.

The designer has an accomplished background.
