World's 1st 'flying car' - a dream come true




Fed up with traffic jams? Here's some good news - a 'flying car' is on its way. An American company, Terrafugia Transition, based near Boston, is to soon start manufacturing "flying cars" called Transition Roadable Light Sport Aircraft, which can be transformed from a car to a plane in just 30 seconds.

The Transition can fly at 185kmph and reach 105kmph on the road. On the ground, with its wings tucked up and in, it can fill up with petrol at a normal filling station and fits in an average size garage."The flying car" is set to go into production this year and is expected to cost between £125,000 (RM614,029) and £160,000 (RM785,957), say its developers. Fully fuelled, one can fly it for a range of 400 (643.7km) to 450 miles (724.2km). According to the CEO of the company, they have successfully test-flown 'the flying car' as many as 28 times.
