The Dutch have made a flying car

Specifically, the PAL-V is a car and a gyroplane combined, capable of both an air and ground speed of 112mph and a sub 8.0sec 0-60mph time. It can be flown in Europe with a Recreational Pilot Licence or a Private Pilot Licence, while a plain old driving licence is all you need to take the PAL-V out on the roads.  

And don’t think that just because it can fly, they’ve made it drive like one of Hannibal’s elephants. The PAL-V features the same Dynamic Vehicle Control system used on the Carver ONE that Hammond drove in Top Gear Series 2, Episode 9.

Basically, the car tilts into corners like a motorcycle, the aggression of your steering input determining the angle of lean. It looks fun. And then when you get to your airfield, or quiet stretch of the M1, out come the propeller and the rotor and you’re up, up and away.
