you have read a lot about flying cars, but until now none has come close to fruition and so the SkyRunner Flying Car you see here is your best bet for a road-running vehicle that can take to sky. technically, it qualifies as a flying car because it can actually takes to the sky, but it isn’t quite the flying car you might have dreamed of. it has no wings and it look like just another regular all terrain vehicle, but when it comes the time to take this machine off the ground and across some lake standing in your path, it has a parasail and a massive pusher propeller to do just that. it has a body made of fiberglass and carbon fiber, and is powered by a 1.0-liter EcoBoost Direct Injection Turbo engine that puts out a healthy 92 kW (123 hp) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque, mated to a four-speed transmission, giving it a top speed of 115 mph (185 km/h) and takes just 4.3 second to launch its sub-1000 lbs weight from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h).
the best part is, you need not to speed up like mad to get it off the ground; it needs just 37 mph (60 km/h) to takeoff and travels up to 55 mph (89 km/h or about 48 knots) to a maximum altitude of 10,000 feet. and it goes pretty far out too, with a range of 200 miles (322 km). though we are not sure if that is the air range or land range, or combination of both. any how, we will take it as the latter. unlike the rest of flying car contraptions, the SkyRunner Flying Car will be ready for your garage by mid-2014 and it will only cost you $119,000 to own. no word if separate license would be required, but who really cares? the worst case scenario is you would be owning an overpriced ATV. how bad could it get? and oh, it seats only one. a few more look after the break, and do check out a short clip of the SkyRunner Flying Car in action in the embedded video further down the page.
