Moller International, designers of the still-in-the-works Moller Skycar, recently began manufacturing parts for a flying-saucer-looking ride called the M200G volantor.
The airborne, two-passenger vehicle is designed to take off and land vertically, and Moller says it can travel over any surface, at heights under ten feet and speeds up to 50 miles per hour.
The vehicle could go higher, but its computer locks its altitude at 10 feet or below so owners don't need a pilot's license. Deriving its power from eight of the rotary engines used in the SkyCar, the M200G could run for up to 90 minutes. All that for a price that could be below $100,000.
Sound unbelievable? Yeah, sort of. We'll have to wait and see.—Gregory Mone
A lucky eBay bidder could walk away with a one-of-a-kind Skycar prototype. Starting bid? Just $1 million

Last year, the Skycar was offered for sale on the cover of Neiman Marcus's famed annual holiday catalogue. No buyers. Now it's on eBay. What's next, collect 340 million Pepsi bottle caps, and it's yours?
