Have you ever dreamt of driving a car that can take to the skies? This little dream could soon become a reality as the world’s first flying car rolls out in October.

The Transition is truly an awesome invention. It is a two-seat hybrid-electric vehicle that can switch between driving and flying modes in less than a minute. It can reportedly fly up to 400 miles at an astonishing top speed of 100mph. The flying car is manufactured by Terrafugia, a company that belongs to Volvo.

Are you ready for the Transition?

Terrafugia has actually been working on the Transition for several years. Not surprisingly, the upgraded version of the vehicle that will be sold this year is truly a sight to behold.

The new version of the Transition boasts of a hybrid-electric motor. In addition to that, the manufacturer guarantees upgraded seats, more luggage storage, improved seat belts, and the always trusty airbags.

Wondering what could make your flying experience more enjoyable? The vehicle’s awesome upgrades include rear-view cameras as well as a new parachute system. Speed freaks will appreciate the car’s “boost” mode since it provides “a brief burst of extra power while flying.”

This amazing car has its own landing gear and can fly up to a maximum altitude of 10,000 feet.

The Transition is designed to carry only two passengers. However, if you’re planning to bring more of your friends for the ride, Terrafugia has another option. The TF-X is the four-person follow-up that will be computer-controlled. This means you can type in your destination before the vehicle takes off.

We’ll have to wait for the manufacturer to announce when the TF-X will be available. In the meantime, the Transition will be available for pre-order starting October. Just be advised that the cars themselves will be delivered in 2019. This should give you enough time to get the required pilot’s license to drive the car.

So what’s the price tag on the world’s first flying car? The selling price has not yet been disclosed. Nevertheless, we could only assume it will probably cost as much as a small plane.
