Sweet Jumps: Here Are a Bunch of Pictures of Cars Flying through the Air

Car and Driver Logo By Alexander Stoklosa of Car and Driver | Slide 1 of 17: This photo gallery follows a simple premise, really, one that came to us as we idly browsed through back issues of our magazine. We were reminded of our once-common practice of launching a car high enough for all four tires to lose purchase with Mother Earth for the sake of a neat photograph to run with a review of a (usually) pedestrian car. Advertisers leaned on the eye-catching format even more, but for this collection we’ve stuck with editorial images run on the physical and digital pages of Car and Driver - like this photo of a 1975 Austin Mini 1000 being flung off a catapult at the end of a rope, from the June 1992 issue. Enjoy!This flock of flying cars was originally compiled in January 2017 and has since been updated with new entries.
