This is the original Moller M400 Skycar®. It is the world’s first true VTOL (vertical-takeoff-and-landing) “Flying Car” to be demonstrated. The M400 Skycar® is a true museum piece, developed over many years and first flown in 2001 at the company’s shareholder meeting. It has since flown (under a restricted environment) many times.

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. It should be noted, however, in this original form, it does not have FAA approval and a condition of this offer is that it cannot be flown.

Nonetheless, this vehicle can be the centerpiece of any car or aircraft collection in a public or private museum. Reassembling the M400 back to its original state will take some time.Alternatively, a bidder can buy the M400 Skycar® and with the support of Moller International, make it the world’s first FAA approved VTOL capable “flying car”.

Over the last 30 years, Moller International has spent more than $150 million developing the engine and airframe technology to make this prototype possible.

A modified version of the original M400 Skycar® was previously offered for sale, but failed to meet the reserve. The M400 Skycar® is now superseded by a hybrid Skycar® 400 configuration and is available to be converted back to when it first flew.
