We are one-step closer to seeing some Back To The Future-type dreams becoming a reality.
The Klein Vision AirCar is a two-passenger vehicle with four wheels, a pusher propeller, switchblade-style retractable wings and a telescoping tail that transforms into a road legal package on the ground in just three minutes, and it DID THE DANG THING THIS WEEK!!!
It traveled between the international airport in Nitra to the international airport in Bratislava, where it converted into a car and was driven downtown.
The AirCar is currently powered by a 160 hp BMW engine and has a top air speed of 118 mph, but will be upgraded to a 300 hp engine that will be capable of reaching 186 mph. It flew at a cruising altitude of 8,200 feet during the recent test.
The downfall is the price. While the exact pricing for the customer version has not been announced, the prototype reportedly cost $2.3 million to develop.
