It’s a dream that’s been a long time coming – the flying car. The credit goes to Terrafugia, a US company, which has created the car called “Transition”.
This is a “roadable aircraft”, according to a company – so less a flying car than a drivable airplane, in fairness. You will need an airstrip to take off, but the wings will get folded up when you land and the engine will motor the wheels instead of the propellers as you whizz down the street.
The cost will be about £120,000 though, so it may be a while before we’re all flying yet.
