Flying Cars?

A few years ago, as a marketing stunt at some European auto trade show, BMW hired an outfit to construct lighter than air replicas of their cars. I remember seeing pictures of these vehicles floating above the heads of onlookers at the show and at a distance really could not tell the difference from the real multi-ton vehicle. I even remember short articles about the construction methods and materials complete with pictures of these amazing creations.
I've tried googling with all the key terms: BMW, flying car, trade show, etc. but have come up with nothing.
Anyone else remember this?

Those have to be expensive, otherwise I'd want one of those.

Thatís truly very interesting and really eager to read all this. Keep sharing all such stuff. I have just started a new car agency and planning to take part in trade exhibits. Looking for some high quality trade show displays to attract visitors to my booth.

Does anyone know how they're constructed inside? I imagine there must be internal baffles or straps? I'm particularly curious about the flat, or flat-ish, panels - how's that done then??
