YOU CAN NOW PRE-ORDER A FLYING CAR AND HAVE IT DELIVERED BY 2018
As far as driving/flying hybrids go, there really isn’t anything to benchmark the Liberty’s performance on, given that it’s the “first certified commercial flying car” to ever hit the market. Still, its specs are pretty decent. On land, it has a top ground speed of 161 km/h (100 mph) and can drive 1,315 km (817 mi) on a full tank. Airborne, it can go up to 180 km/h (112 mph), however it will require refueling every 499 km (310 mi).
The Liberty starts at $400,000, so there’s apretty hefty price tag attached to it just for the basic Sport model. It’s likely that total cost will go upwards of $600,000 to get the “Pioneer” edition, which comes with exclusive training sessions, power heating, and an electronic flight instrument display.
Production is slated for the end of 2017 and delivery for the vehicles are scheduled for 2018. Until then, interested drivers/pilots are expected to give a non-refundable deposit of $10,000 for the Sport and $25,000 for the Pioneer.
