See the PAL-V flying car make its US debut

Science
[MUSIC] The first flying car you can buy has landed in the US and by you, I of course mean the insanely rich. We've been telling you about the Pal V for a while now and what the future. But the Dutch company behind finally brought it to the US. How v stands for pioneer personal air landing vehicle. And it's only fitting that a car that can literally fly over traffic made its American debut in a city with some of the worst gridlock in the country. The Pahlavi Liberty rolled out at the Paramount Miami world center for the city's annual art week. They chose that particular building because it's one of the first in the world to build an actual skyport where a flying car could take off from and land. Now, this is a prototype model, didn't actually do anything, didn't fly, didn't drive. But we have seen videos put out by the company previous models that appear to show the vehicles flying. And what separates the PAL-V from other flying cars we've seen out there is you can actually order one of these right now. The company says it's already secured 70 preorders of its more premium Liberty model since they went on sale last year. The price tag for the Liberty? $600,000. Now if that's out of your reach, up for the sport version at 400,000 let's be real when it comes to flying cars go big or go home. So what does that extra $200,000 get you for the limited edition liberty. According to the PALV website, exclusive colors and customization options. Premium Italian design interiors of gold plated certificate of authenticity. So you can prove to your friends you're in this exclusive club as their only be 90 pioneers and invitations to special events. Now despite its appearance, the pelvis isn't just a helicopter with wheels. It's technically a gyrocopter. That means it can't take off vertically. It needs to get up to speed on the ground before getting airborne. And you do need a pilot's license to fly it. But one thing it does have going for it is size. In car mode, it fits in a standard parking spot. And it runs on gasoline. Now according to PLV, the vehicle has a top speed of about 112 miles per hour on land and in the air. Sitting on three wheels it drives kind of like a motorcycle. When it's time to fly. Those propellers come out and a free spinning rotor provides lift Light ranges listed between 220 and 350 miles. Now let's be clear. Originally the company said first deliveries would begin this year. That was then pushed back to 2020. And now the company's website says 2021. That's it for this week. Thanks for watching. I'm Andy Altman. See in the future.
