The Terrafugia Transition is a car that can fly with wings like a normal airplane. US Federal Air Authority have given the car-plane a special weight exemption, paving way for the mass production. This is an important thing to note because it is usually difficult to obtain a street-legal car manufacturing license in the US due to higher safety measures, and the Terrafugia Transition seems to have managed to get it.
The Terrafugia Transition will set you back by $195500, while the company is asking for $10,000 deposit up front. Once airborne, the speed of the car-plane powered by 100 hp Rotax 912S engine is expected to be around 115 mph with a payload of around 430 lbs. The first finished vehicle is expected to be delivered in late 2011.
