Flying car debuts in 2011

The revolutionary car that can fly will start rolling out in the next few months. Straight out of James Bond, the Terrafugia Transition is a lightweight airplane that can also double as a car. As reported in the Guardian, “The vehicle would allow the driver and a passenger to drive to the airport, hit the runway after deploying the wings, fly to their chosen airport and then drive to their destination.”
At the heart of the concept are folding wings that, at the press of a button, tuck in neatly beside the cockpit for road use. Priced around $200,000, the manufacturer indicated that about 70 people have already placed orders for it so far. The car can fly for 450 miles at a stretch. (
