It looks unimaginable or simply the work of science fiction but flying cars could be a reality as soon as next year. Two prototypes were trialed on Thursday on the French Riviera at an event in Monaco. Both the Dutch and Slovak companies unveiled their designs at this ‘super cars’ event.
The Slovak design is six meters long and with a fully deployed span of nine meters. It is ‘normal’ four-wheel car which can unfold its wings to transform itself into a plane. This plane can carry two passengers.
The Dutch design is more compact at four meters long. This car/plane can also carry two people with designers calling it the safest plane on the planet and able to fly in any weather conditions.
The hefty price tag these designs come with means that you won’t see these flying around your local street just yet. However, it is an exciting development nonetheless.
