World’s first flying Car

Is it a car? Is it a plane? Actually it’s both. The first flying automobile, equally at home in the sky or on the road, is scheduled to take to the air next month.

The Transition, developed by former Nasa engineers, is powered by the same 100bhp engine on the ground and in the air.  Watch the following video that shows how this flying car fly, lands, and runs on the road after its wings are folded

Terrafugia claims it will be able to fly up to 500 miles on a single tank of petrol at a cruising speed of 115mph. Up to now, however, it has been tested only on roads at up to 90mph.
