Watch: A four-seater flying car

New Delhi: US scientists have designed a next-gen flying car capable of taking off vertically and flying completely on its own - and it could be on the roads within a decade. The Terrafugia TF-X flying car can take off vertically and has a flying range of 805 km. Once airborne, the two propellers fold back and propulsion is handled by an engine mounted behind the cockpit. Everything from take-off, to flying, and eventual touch-down at the chosen destination will be handled automatically by the Terrafugia. Watch it here.
