Flying cars set to hit market by 2012


Many have a dream of owning a flying car, but it could finally become a reality within the next year.

U.S. company Terrafugia will start manufacturing flying cars called the Transition Roadable Light Sport Aircraft, which can be transformed from a car to a plane in just 30 seconds.

The Transition can fly at 115 mph and reach 65 mph on the road.

It is set to go into production this year and is expected to cost between £125,000 and £160,000 excluding the shipping costs.
