It’s not science fiction any more. A company called Terrafugia was on hand at this week’s New York Auto Show, showing off a flying car – with video proof that it both flies and drives.

Actually more of a driving airplane, the Terrafugia team has been working on this car for years, completely revamping a prototype model they built back in 2009.

To find out more about the aptly-named Transition, how it works and what it costs, watch AutoGuide’s first look video below.

    “Were we’re going we don’t need roads” It’s not even 2015 yet! I’ve been hoping for flying cars since Back to the Future, I hope this idea really takes off!
    I speak for all cars!

    This is really awesome! The science fiction-likely future every kid used to see in movies is almost reality. But I’m just wondering: In a scenario with volatile weather conditions, what’s better: say a “Volkswagen” or a flying car? The same for a scenario with, let’s just say, 1 million people traveling at the same time in the same space? Hmmmmmm….
