JUL 2010 / 2nd gen Terrafugia

The Terrafugia single engine two seater aircraft packs a light "transformer" truck. The 2nd gen Terrafugia is the result of a trans-Atlantic collab between industrial designers, including KiBiSi, mechanical engineers, aerodynamic engineers and a dedicated Terrafugia geek squad with an unequaled childhood dream of flying cars.
The FAA approved vehicle merges the worlds and requirements of cars, trucks and planes, combining cutting edge aerodynamics, mechanics and manufacturing skills.
The overall design approach and thought mode has been holistic - making an unfamiliar object appear as a wholesome whole. Step by step it has been built on one new coherent DNA set, aligning very different sets of requirements and, to one another, outlandish elements and characteristics from each their transportation paradigm.
