World’s Most Expensive Car – Citroen

The GT by Citroën (sometimes spelled GTbyCitroën) is a sports car
that debuted as a concept car on October 2 at the 2008 Paris Motor Show.
The car is a collaboration between the French automaker Citroën and the
Japanese racing simulation developer Polyphony Digital. An extremely
limited edition, only 6
are to be built.

World’s Most Expensive Car –

Polyphony Digital’s Citroën GT is set to become one of the most
expensive “production
(if you can really call it that…) sold today, coming in at £1.1
million pounds or approximately $1.8 million U.S. dollars. AutoCar got
the scoop from “senior inside sources”, who revealed that only six of
the will be
made — all of which will be powered by either a “Ford or GM V8?. That’s
considerably less than the 20 production models that were hinted at
before, but according to AutoCar, “most of the concept’s features should
make the final production version, including the carbon-fibre
construction and eccentric interior details such as the copper trim.”
Sweet! The final production version of the car is expected to be
launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September.

Terrafugia Transition: The NEW Flying Car

Terrafugia Transition

fly-web.jpgHowever, if you’re looking to navigate the urban jungle, you might want to consider The Transition from Terrafugia out of Woburn, Massachusetts. The Transition, designed by a team of MIT-trained engineers, is a roadable aircraft featuring motorized wings that fold out in about 30 seconds. When on the road, the wings fold up so close to the body that you can fit the vehicle inside a standard, single-car garage. Yet it’s still roomy enough for two people and their luggage, including such luxuries as skiing equipment or golf clubs.

To get airborne, the Transition uses a large rear propeller that will send the vehicle through the sky at 115MPH for a range of 460 miles. Best of all, it uses standard unleaded gasoline and gets a respectable 30MPG on the road.

Much like the Parajet SkyCar, this isn’t just the pipe dream of an ambitious inventor – as you can see in the video below, the Transition made its first runway test flight on March 5, 2009, with more extensive flights to follow soon.

Unlike other roadable aircrafts, if you want your own Transition, you can actually order one right now with a $10,000 down payment. The final purchase price will be in the neighborhood of $194,000 and the first owners should be able to take flight in 2011.

It’s hard to say if we’ll all one day fly to work or to pick up the kids from soccer practice. But if these modern designs are any indication, the long-held dream of a flying car in every garage might just become a reality.
