This is an interesting combo... I wonder if the control as an aircraft or as an automobile suffers because of the compromises made to accommodate being both modes of transportation ? Guess we should buy one, and test it.

We were always amazed by Scaramanga's flying AMC Matador in The Man With The Golden Gun, and now you can own your very own flying car. Or is that driving plane? Actually, it's the Terrafugia Transition ($195,000). This "light sport" aircraft features electrically-powered folding wings that, when paired with the rear-facing propeller, allow it to fly at 115 mph for up to 460 miles. But should inclement weather strike, or you just decide to drive, the wings fold up and the Transition becomes a street-legal car that gets 30 miles to the gallon. It's the ultimate getaway vehicle, provided you, your sidekick/henchman, and your loot don't weigh more than 450 lbs.
