The Transition can reach around 115 km per hour on the road and 185 in the air. It flies using a 87-litre tank of automotive fuel and burns 19 litres per hour in the air
Around 100 people have already put down a $10,000 deposit to get a Transition when they go on sale, and those numbers will likely rise after Terrafugia introduces the Transition to the public later this week at the New York Auto Show. But don't expect it to show up in too many driveways. It's expected to cost $279,000.
And it won't help if you're stuck in traffic. The car needs a runway.
The Transition has two seats, four wheels and wings that fold up so it can be driven like a car, and flew at 1,400 feet for eight minutes during the first test on March 23, 2012.
