The dream of owning a flying car has moved a step closer to reality - thanks to an ambitious engineering company based in Woburn, Massachusetts. 

Terrafugia has released images of its next-generation flying car, the TF-X. Capable of taking off vertically and flying completely on its own, this street-legal flying car won’t require a pilot’s licence to operate. With a flying range of 500 miles, once airborne, the two propellors fold back and propulsion is handled by an engine mounted behind the cockpit.
