Default The Lilium Flying Car

Inviting the attention of TBHPians to this new kid in the block. The Lilium electric flying car that made its maiden flight last week in Germany.

- it's electric
- quieter than a superbike
- requires absolutely no runway as it is VTOL
- claimed operating cost is lower than a taxi ride!
- you don't necessarily need to own one, it is on-demand just like Uber.

Mods, I searched but found no thread for it. Kindly do the needful if one does exist. Thanks.

You would still need a pilot license next to a driving license to operate it. providing its legal/certified to be operated in the first place.
