Chinese company, Terrafugia is set to open its pre-order books next month for what it describes as the world’s first practical flying car.

The 100mph ‘Transition’ features a parachute system and a ‘boost’ mode to give a “brief burst of extra power while flying”.

It also boasts retractable wings so it can be driven on roads.

A Terrafugia spokesperson said: “The Transition is the world’s first practical flying car.

“A two-seat roadable light sport aircraft, the Transition features wings that fold and unfold, converting between flight and drive modes in under a minute.

“Eliminating the hassle of hangar storage, ground transportation, and aviation fuel, the Transition fuels up with automotive gas and can be stored in your home garage.”
