    Car Industry set to fly... Maybe.

    vintagecar Do you remember the old cartoon the Jetsons? How about Back to Future part II? Yes I hear you cry, well can you also tell me what they both had in common? I'll give you a clue, the flying cars and in particular the Flying DeLorean? Well these soon could be a reality according to the Times Online as the Terrafugia boss, Carl Dietrich says proudly 'It's like a little Transformer' The car's wings fold up automatically and in 15 seconds you'll be air born to road worthy. Dietrich gives many reasons as to why the car will be great for the road. They promise to be quicker than normal cars for intercity commuting, fit into a household garage (saving hanger fees) and even run on premium unleaded petrol. The best thing about this car, and by far other than anything else, is that it is unbelievably cool.The petrol motor is a 100bhp single engine that runs both the motor and propeller, it has a steering wheel, accelerator and brakes just like a normal car but no gearstick. With the propeller it can take off from any airfield, but not from the roads as it is illegal in all states except Alaska. It can fly up to 500 miles on a single tank of petrol at a great speed of about 115mph. It is excitedly due to be test driven next month.
