Flying Ferrari: Coming Soon to a Dealership Near You!
Moller International, a company that's no stranger to flying concept cars, claims they will have a flying vehicle based on the Ferrari 599 ready to hit the market in just two years time.
It will have the ability to take off vertically and hover thanks to eight powerful thrusters which direct air down for take off. Vents then tilt so the car can fly forward.
The car is expected to be able to do 100mph on the ground and 150mph in the air, with a calculated airborne range of 75 miles and ground range of 150 miles. Designers estimate it should be able to reach heights of 5000 feet – giving you enough time to regret buying a flying car as you plummet back to Earth during mechanical failure. Hey, that’s the price you pay for being an early adopter.
Well, that and about a million bucks.
