What Dorri wants for Christmas

Posted by ifitsgotanengine on December 20, 2005

Dorri finally decided what he wants for Christmas.

He was looking through his Neiman Marcus Christmas catalog and there it was – right in the middle – the M400 Skycar.

From the ad:

• The M400 Skycar is the world’s first personal vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft, designed to elevate individual drivers above the headaches of commuting and the dangers of highway travel.
• In development since the 1960s, the Skycar has completed successful hovering flights, and its first manned, un-tethered flight is planned for Fall 2005.
• Developed by Moller International, the three-wheeled, folding-wing craft is designed to be as safe, affordable, and easy to use as an automobile.
• Travels at 350+ miles per hour and achieves an environmentally friendly 21 miles per gallon on alcohol, a cleaner fuel than gasoline.

According to the builder’s website, the Skycar will cost around $80,000 (about the cost of a luxury automobile) after it reaches mass production.

Unfortunately it isn’t being mass produced just yet, in fact there’s just the prototype for sale now. The pricefrom Neiman Marcus? 3.5 million dollars.

Dorri still wants it. And Dorri still doesn’t like it when people refer to themselves in the third person.
