The Pipistrel Virus: a 50 MPG flying car? Uh, no
So, is the Virus the real deal when it comes to a vehicle that can seamlessly move from the highway on the road to the great highway in the sky? Nope, not even close - it is solely an airplane as a matter of fact. But, it is known as the "Prius of airplanes" reaching up to 170 mph and getting up to 50 miles to the gallon. In case you were wondering, no - it's not a hybrid. With the vehicle costing $70,000, though, you might wonder why our cars seem so much less efficient.
