We have all wished to own a car that can run on the ground as well as fly in the sky after watching those futuristic sci-fi movies. It was a dream to so many and I don’t count myself out of it.
A car that can run on the ground and fly at the same time looks such a distant thing, doesn’t it? Well, world’s first car that can both run and fly is all ready and will be coming out next month for the pre-bookings in the market.
The vehicle is an advanced vehicle and it can fly up to 400mph as its top speed. The speed of the vehicle is equal to a car’s, which is 100 mph. the prices of the vehicle are yet to be decided but this is final that the car will be coming out next month for pre-order and the deliveries will be made by the next year.

The hybrid electric mechanism can switch from a driving vehicle to a flying vehicle just in a minute.
The company said that they have made some changes to improve the vehicles. A hybrid – the electric motor is installed, seats are made more luxuries and comfortable, seatbelts were changed in order to be more reliable, airbags were improved and more space for luggage storage was acquired.
This is not all; the changes also include a rare view camera in the machine. The mechanism also has a boost mode that will give an extra push of the power to the vehicle while flying.
The safety of everything is particularly taken care of as the mechanism meets all the safety criteria of the Traffic Safety Administration and National Highway standards. However, as the mechanism also operates in the air, the driver will not be allowed to drive the car until they have a pilot license.
The mechanism approximately weighs 1,300 pounds and can go maximum altitude of 10,000 feet. It has fold over wings that come out of the mechanism when the car is switched to the fly mode.
