Flying cars could be available to purchase this year
The world’s most exclusive supercar show, Top Marques Monaco, is set to be graced with the first ever production-ready flying car.
Built by AeroMobil, the car’s concept was first mentioned in 2014. Today, it is said to be nearly ready for purchase. No doubt the richest will all be queuing up to try out the brand new Slovak motor vehicle.
The fully functioning car will act as a traditional four-wheeled car as well as an aircraft. It is said to be powered by hybrid propulsion, and has wings that sweep against the body when the vehicle is in use.
CEO Juraj Vaculik has stated that the concept will be available in 2017.
“By combining aero and car functionality in perfect harmony it heralds a new era in efficient and exciting travel, offering users an unparalleled choice of transport on the road or in the air,” an AeroMobil spokesperson said.
“AeroMobil aims to make personal transportation vastly more efficient and environmentally friendly by allowing significantly faster door-to-door travel for medium distance trips and in areas with limited or missing road infrastructure.”
However, it is highly likely that whoever purchases this machine will have to hold a standard driving and pilot license.
The production company have stated that they have raised an additional £2.6 million in order to help with the making of this vehicle.
AeroMobil haven’t yet announced the price that the car will be on the market for. Although, if you are interested it’s suggested you estimate and save quite a hefty amount.
