You Can Own the Original 'Just Two Years Away' Flying Car for Five Million Bucks
After spending 40 years and unspeakable amounts of investor money to make his dream a reality,
You've probably seen the G90 M400 Skycar before. As our own
has pointed out
, Moller has convinced countless publications to feature his creation over the years, promising a future where bumper-to-bumper traffic is a thing of the past-a dream that has always been

Or at least ones you can't actually fly, because-as Moller's eBay listing points out-the FAA won't let you fly the Moller Skycar without significant repairs and reassembly.
A collector who buys the M400 will receive it in its original 2001 flight form and condition, complete with eight Rotapower engines that produced over 720 hp allowing the M400 Skycar® to take off and land vertically.

But find yourself a good body shop and your first flight (still!) shouldn't be any farther than just two years away.
