I don’t think there’s anyway for us to be objective when it comes to the new ParaJet SkyCar. It’s simply way too cool.
A couple things have changed since last time we reported on it. The design has evolved a great deal, Parajet International Ltd. is now offering prospective purchasers a chance to throw a £10,000 ($16,338 U.S.) deposit down and the ParaJet SkyCar now has it’s own website.
While we couldn’t find any recent stats on the production version of the SkyCar, we did dig up what we could on the prototype that first caught the media’s attention when it made the trip on biofuel from London, England to Timbuktu in Mali, Africa.
When flying, the ParaJet SkyCar speed tops out at 68 miles/hour and has a range of 186 miles off a full tank of biofuel. Its maximum altitude is 15,000 feet above sea level.
When on the ground, it runs on a four-wheel suspension, goes from 0-60 in 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 112 miles/hour with a 250 mile range.
The Parajet SkyCar is slated to start flying into buyers lives late 2010.
