Ever imagined of a car that might fly and take you away from awful traffic jams on the streets? Well, airborne cars are set to be a truth pretty soon, thank you to Mr Stefan Klein, who capitalized 20 years on the mission. After working thoroughly for years, Mr Klein - the chief engineer and co-founder of AeroMobil - has originated a model called the AeroMobil 2.5. After magnificently testing the AeroMobil 2.5 model for take-off, flight and landing, the corporation will reveal the world's first fabrication ready flying car, the AeroMobil 3.0, on October 29, 2014 at the Pioneers Festival in Austria.
AeroMobil has been employed on the flying car idea since 1990, and rendering to the company, its first model viewed quite strange and was impossible for regular use. This, the firm says, was "a signal to recover the idea of the flying car in a way to develop an integral part of the consistent road traffic."
Driving the AeroMobil 3.0 is a Rotax 912 locomotive that has a range of 700 Kms while airborne and 875 kms on road. Remarkably, the flying car has been claimed to consume 15 litres per hour for flying, and 12.5Km/l while driving. The appealed top-speed of the car is 200Km/h in air and 160Km/h on road, while the take-off speed is 130Km/h.
For the inquiring cats out there, the wings fold into the back seat after the driver in car mode. That said, the firm feels that the plan of the car still needs work, so more enhancements will be made to the car in order to make it flawlessly fit for both, flying in the air and driving on the road.
