Top 10 Cars of the 2012 NY Auto Show

Over the past few years Lexus has been referred to as a Japanese Buick, with the number one reason being the ES front-drive luxury sedan – a car that drew direct comparisons with the not-quite-Cadillac GM premium brand. To erase those comparos the new 2013 ES gets a more stylish exterior with a GS-themed front nose and a profile more like the flagship LS.

Terrafugia Transition Flying Car More of a Street Legal Airplane: 2012 NY Auto Show

It’s not science fiction, it’s a genuine flying car. Unveiled today at the New York International Auto Show the Terrafugia Transition is actually more of a street-legal airplane designed for occasional use on the road.

Still, it is certified for the street using an aircraft engine that powers the rear wheels and can get 35 mpg with a top speed of about 80 mph. Press a button and the wings fold out. You’ll need about 1700 feet of runway space (no taking off from the street) and once airborne the Transition can cruise at 120 mph for a range of 450 miles.

Inside the cockpit there are car and airplane controls with a steering wheel, brake and gas pedal. Once the wings are out, you can then operate the console-mounted throttle, the control stick that rises up from the floor and the two additional pedals that control the rudders.

Awaiting its final flight certification the Transition retails for $279,000 and company representatives say a total of 100 units have already been pre-ordered.
