New Delhi: When we were kids we always had a dream of flying in the sky in our own vehicle. This fantasy is a collective thought which has been inherited from the movies. But, now this dream & fantasy has been transformed into reality and you can actually own a flying car within few years from now.
A new design of world's first flying car was unveiled recently by Massachusetts-based car company, Terrafugia. However, the company was able to demonstrate the actual flying vehicle 2 years ago.
How it works:
The vehicle uses the 'Plug-in' technology. The car's engine comes fired up with gasoline and electric motors.
Propellers of the vehicle generate enough power that enables a vertical take off. The 300-horsepower gasoline engine is turned on once the TF-X takes off from the ground.
Speed of the vehicle:
The TF-X has a range of 500 miles and a cruising speed of 200 mph that will make up for a comfortable ride. This flying car is a welcoming retort for all your transportation activities.
The four seater car will fit in to standard construction single car garage. It can take-off vertically from the ground clearing of at least 100ft in diameter.
