Biofuel Skycar ready for production

Biofuel Skycar ready for production

Parajet Skycar fq

Earlier this year, the Parajet Skycar Expedition, featured the “World’s First Bio-fuelled Flying Car,” that flew from London, England to Timbuktu in Mali, Africa. If you have ever wanted something this cool — a car that can transform from ground to air mode in about three minutes and actually work well in both areas, then it’s good news for you. Parajet International has struck a deal to produce road-legal SkyCars with the help of Rage Motorsport.

Rage will build the vehicle and Parajet will add all the parts that make it fly. A mock-up of the vehicle is pictured, but Parajet says a “totally new chassis is being designed for the SkyCar which accommodates the rear fan system into the tubular chassis work.” This will reduce overall weight by about 80 kg. Other changes for the production version are to include a re-positioned rear parachute, more legroom and a three-cylinder, 140 horsepower fuel-injected Yamaha engine. You won’t have to wait too long to get one with Parajet saying test flights of the skycar should start happening this September and the release date could be as early as 2010.
