Submission + - First production flying car to be built

Tookis writes: The first production flying car is being designed to be a vertical take-off and landing vehicle. The flying car, under production for consumer purchase, is called the M200G. Its cost to customers is estimated to be at least $90,000 (in U.S. dollars). The M200G uses eight low-emission Rotapower engines (Wankel rotary engines, produced by Freedom Motors). Its advanced cooling system allows it to be a fairly lightweight vehicle. Its projected cruising speed is about 50 miles per hour at about 10 feet off the ground. A Mark II version under development will have a cruising speed of 300MPH at an altitude of more than 6 miles. http://www.itwire.com.au/content/view/13627/1066/
