An Indian national identified as Mithilesh Prasad has shocked the internet with his latest creations. He transformed his Tata Nano compact city car into a helicopter by integrating some basic element of a helicopter into the hatchback.
Born in Simari village in Baniyapur, the 24 years old pipe fitter has always dreamt of constructing a helicopter and flying in it as well. A dream he couldn't fulfill but decided to use his car to live it out.
The car now looking like a helicopter has drawn a lot of attention in Chhapra city, Bihar State, India.

When Mithilesh was interviewed about his creation, he said,
"It was my dream since childhood that I construct a helicopter on my own and fly in it. But I don't have a strong background so I made my car look like a helicopter."
Mithilesh only passed out from 12th grade in school and even though he might not get to build or fly a helicopter, he's content to drive on the road with his helicopter car.
