If you’re planning a trip across the Bering Strait a few summers from now, then you might wanna take a look at the ParaJet Skycar. It’s the world’s first bio-fueled flying car, and if you recall it has already traveled from London to Timbuktu.
Now after many successful flights, its creator has plans to sell the vehicle to the general public. To grab one of the first you’ll have to throw down a £10,000 deposit and then be prepared to spend £50,000 more when it will ship in 2010.
The vehicle is completely street legal and achieves 0-60 mph in just 4.2 seconds and cruises at a top speed of 120mph on land and 70mph in air. Keep in mind you’ll need about 50 to 100 meters of runway for lift off, so if you’re planning to purchase the SkyCar you might wanna look into an estate or remote land opportunities.
Check the videos below for a bit more detail and to see it in action.
