Tired of sitting in traffic queues? Keen to drive without any restrictions? Then this may be just what you are looking for.
A Slovakian company, Klein-Vision, has just announced that its prototype flying car, known as AirCar, has completed a 35-minute flight between the airports at Nita and Bratislava, reaching a cruising speed of 118 mph. Powered by a 160 horsepower BMW engine, it can convert into a sports car by an operation controlled by buttons which takes about three minutes to complete.
Having proved the concept, Klein-Vision is now working on a more powerful version, complete with a 300-horsepower engine and capable of speeds of 182 mph and, more crucially, a range of 621 miles.
Will the idea take off?
