PAL-V Liberty Pioneer Edition Flying Car Will Set You Back $599,000

PAL-V, the Dutch company that’s on track to deliver the world’s first production flying car, has brought the Liberty Pioneer Edition to the Geneva Motor Show.

As the name suggests, the PAL-V Liberty Pioneer Edition represents the first batch of flying cars that will actually be delivered to customers.

“The Pioneer Edition is for those that want to be part of the group of 90 that writes history with us. They will be at the forefront of a mobility revolution, where we will no longer have cars that can only drive. They will be the first car flyers in their country, fly driving to any destination,” said PAL-V CEO R. Dingemanse.

Built in a limited run of 90 units worldwide, the PAL-V Liberty Pioneer Edition features unique details inside and out. For starters, it features a two-tone color scheme and full carbon exterior package consisting of hand-laid carbon parts. The tailor-made interior gains interior parts made from lightweight aviation aluminum and high-quality leather.

Most importantly, the Pioneer Edition will be delivered prior to any other Liberty flying car, with PAL-V saying that shipping of regular models will only begin after all Pioneer Edition vehicles will have reached their owners.

The PAL-V Liberty Pioneer Edition will is priced at $599,000 in the United States, a whopping $200,000 more than the standard Liberty Sport Edition. Compared to the base model, the Pioneer Edition features more standard equipment including dual controls, EFIS (Electronic Flight Instrument System), power heating, and carbon fiber trim.

Deliveries of the first Liberty Pioneer Edition flying cars begin in 2020.

    Have an extra $600K? You can be the next in a long list of people to die in a “Flying Car”. First we start with a crappy under powered 3-wheel car then put wings on it, now it’s both a crappy plane and a crappy car!
