The flying dune buggy that's faster than an M3

People have been obsessed with flying cars since basically even before the Wright brothers proved that powered flight was possible without ending in death. A few companies over the years have put out some prototypes, but they've always either been ridiculously expensive, unstable, both, or complete vaporware. That's all changed now, though, thanks to a company called SkyRunner that's currently taking orders.

The whole thing's built out of carbon fiber and fiberglass, so its total weight is less than 1000 pounds. In other words, it doesn't take much to go crazy fast. It may only have a one-liter engine, but its turbocharged to 125 horsepower, and on the ground it hits 60 miles per hour about as quickly as the new M3.

Can't stand the ground? Once you hit 37 miles per hour you can deploy a parachute that's actually a paraglider wing that's specially designed for extra pitch and roll control while absorbing any extra vibrations put out by that motor.

When you're cruising around 15,000 feet above the ground, the absolute last thing you want is to be distracted by a bunch of gauges and dials, so it's only got the bare necessities, and everything else is on this iPad display mounted to the steering wheel/yoke.
