You'd need the jetpack offered a couple of weeks ago to go with it, just in case you had car trouble.

$200K is actually pretty cheap for a flying car

I like that they're using the tag line "It's time to make the transition" to try and convince you to make the deposit. Is it? Is it? Is it really time to make THAT transition??

Anticipated production Q3 2011...seems like none have been actually sold or built for production yet. We've been waiting since the '50s for these, I think I'll wait till the launch of this in the middle of the real low of this depression to think about a deposit on one.

Is it legal to take off on the highway?

"WHEREAS, the Company requires a deposit of $10,000.00 (the “Deposit”), to be held in escrow in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, including but not limited to the provisions that the Deposit is fully refundable (less a $475 processing fee) at any time at the request of the Customer prior to the execution of a definitive purchase agreement between the Company and the Customer."

$475? That's some processing your deposit is going through.

So last week on the 101 in bumper to bumper traffic I got car(plane?)jacked in mine. Damn insurance won't cover it because it is not really a car. Screw you Geico!!

nice no speeding tickets, just lower the wings and away you go. unless the police get their choppers to pull you over.

Personally, I prefer the Switchblade:

http://samsonmotorworks.com/

It's target price is $85,000 complete (but it is a kit so there is some sweat equity), it has a much cleaner design, and best of call, they plan a non-flying version for those without a pilots license, but with a motorcycle license (I have a license, so I'll take the wings thanks).

@ekid2k: To some extent the ability to take off from the road is determined by local law usually, but in general no. The main reason is meeting the FAA requirements for minimum safe distance from people and structures.

@mhodges:

i doubt the switchblade is anything close to safe, it looks exactly like a Reliant Robin with the one wheel in the front. This is Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson's segment with the Reliant: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqjsJxHSJMo

@itsuxdud: There are companies that build "flying motorcycles" but they are all trikes. The above mentioned Switchblade is one. Also there is one that has been for sale for a while :
