- To begin with, the jet-propelled car will carry four passengers.
- The prototype is expected to be ready in four years.
- It will have a highway cruising speed of up to 160 km per hour and a turbine engine with 3,500 pounds of thrust.
02 June 2014, Kathmandu – Dusty rough road, taking several hours to reach your destination in an ill-fated bus may come to an end soon, Landscape like ours may benefited by such innovations whereas surging Oil prices, lack of roads and hilly landscape are making our journey the most difficult and dangerous in the world.
A group of engineers from California USA testing a supercar that can fly and run in the road both with a rechargeable battery and can carry up to 4 people on board. If all goes well in the testing, commercially producing, in four years’ time you will have your private Jet with you at a lesser price than an ordinary car.
Fasten your seat belts. A jet car that flies at 880 km per hour is being conceptualized that would fly you from New Delhi to Mumbai in less than two hours – and it may use a highway as a runway to take off!
The concept vehicle, named GF7, is the brainchild of California-based engineers Greg Brown and Dave Fawcett from Airboss Aerospace – a design and engineering firm primarily dedicated to the aerospace industry.
This means it will be able to fly to 38,000 feet and hit the speed of 880 km per hour.
“You can save jet fuel by using the electric motor to drive to the runway and start the turbine engine when you need it,” Brown was quoted as saying in a Gizmag report.
“The turbine engine produces plenty of extra electrical capacity to charge the batteries,” he added.
Hope this car comes to the market and could be reached within our pocket.
