Traffic jams and blown out tires caused by horrendous road conditions will soon be a thing of the past for adopters of the PAL-V One flying car.

While there have been many hovering vehicles to hit both the big screen and the mass market, few have been able to seamless integrate a three-wheeled motorized pod with a gyroplane that can be converted between the two modes in a matter of minutes. With the touch of a button -- literally -- a single rotor and propeller emerge from the roof of the vehicle to allow the driver to take to the skies.

The hybrid vessel boasts effective air and land function, with the ability to soar under 4,000 feet for approximately 350 miles and cover 750 miles of ground when cruising along the road on a single tank of gas.
