The video in which Air Car has been shown driving on a runway and transforming into a plane as it takes off is making rounds on social media. 

"The fifth generation flying car designed by Professor Stefan Klein completed two 1500′ AGL flights at Piestany airport in Slovakia this week. The model safely achieved two full airport patterns, including two takeoffs and landings," said an official release, as quoted by The Indian Express. 

"Powered by a BMW 1.6l engine, the car-plane has an effective power output of 140HP. Estimated travel range of AirCar is 1,000km and flight consumption of 18 l/h."

The developers said the car is suited for self-driven journeys or as a private taxi service. 

The company's website says the flying prototype of the car was revealed to the general public in November 2019 at the China International Import (CIIE) in Shanghai.

Earlier, companies like AeroMobil have also come up with similar cars.
