caricopter (noun) : a car that transforms into a helicopter

We’re supposed to get a Dutch-built “caricopter” (car/helicopter), also known as the PAL-V personal air and land vehicle, sometime this year. On the ground it’s a three-wheeled sports car capable of zero to 60 in under eight seconds. In the air it goes 115 mph and has a 225-mile flying range. A big caveat is the $295,000 price tag. —Jim Montavalli, www.cartalk.com, March 19, 2014
