The Moller M400 Skycar

You might say it’s the stuff of science fiction as in Harrison Ford’s air cab in Blade Runner, but a limited number of M400s is expected to be available within the next three years. If unable to wait, you can purchase the actual prototype now for $3,500,000.00.

Developed by Moller International, this three-wheeled, folding-wing craft is designed to be as safe, affordable, and easy to use as an automobile. It travels at 350+ miles per hour and achieves an environmentally friendly 21 miles per gallon on alcohol, a cleaner fuel than gasoline. Because most auto emissions occur at idle or low speeds, the M400 will produced less pollution by burning fuel more completely.

The M400 Skycar is the world's first personal vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft, designed to elevate individual drivers above the headaches of commuting and the dangers of highway travel. In development since the 1960s, the Skycar has completed successful hovering flights, and its first manned, un-tethered flight is planned for Fall 2005.

To learn more about the M400 Skycar prototype, please visit Moller.

I'm sure with demand, Niko, its price would drastically come down, but at 3,500? That would be really sweet, wouldn't it?.
