These Flying Cars Could Be In Action Sooner Than You Think

Description

If you think flying cars are a science fiction technology which might appear sometime in the distant future, think again. The age of the Jetsons is upon us and, believe it or not, some flying cars are soon going into mass production. Two real life flying cars, including the PAL V Liberty and the AeroMobil, were showcased at the Monaco Top Marques Auto Show. The PAL V Liberty is now for sale and first deliveries are expected by the end of 2018. The other flying vehicle on show is the AeroMobil. While the PAL V Libery has a retractable helicopter rotor, the AeroMobil has retractable wings and can take off and land from commercial airports and even from highways, if necessary. The Slovakian-made AeroMobil can reach a top speed of 100mph in the street and 124 mph in the sky. Take-off is possible with a minimum speed of 60mph. AeroMobil has a flying range of 500 miles and can carry two passenger. It costs $1.3 million to pre-order, requires a pilot's license, and is only certified in Europe. Welcome to the age of the Jetsons

Global research (including two customer clinics in America and China) also demonstrated that over 40 per cent of customers travel with rear seat passengers at least once a week. This data has been used to develop the latest iteration of the new four door grand tourer, focusing on the driver experience whilst retaining a cabin space that combines exquisite luxury with integrated latest-generation technology.The Flying Spur V8 offers a more driver-centric experience via increased agility and a more characterful engine note, whilst benefiting from increased range between fuel stops and a reduction in CO2 emissions.
