Given his work, we’d label pilot/engineer/musician Dezso Molnar as a man of many hats. And a helmet or two.

Think rock-star-meets-rocket-scientist. In a flying car that could make Chitty Chitty Bang Bang weep real tears.

Molnar’s version of the flying car, the Molnar G2, melds a stock Suzuki GSX-R 600 motorcycle engine with a carbon-fiber-and-steel propeller and frame to create a street legal “gyrocycle” that can soar. 

Fourteen years in development, the innovative build can seamlessly transition between ground and flight mode and can reach a top speed of 200 MPH on the ground and 90 in the air.

In order to showcase what the G2 can do, Molnar wants to create a flying-car racing circuit and is hoping his design will serve as a call to arms for other like-minded inventors to build competing racers. “Those are the freaks that matter to me,” he told Designboom. “The ones that wanna take their 300 MPH jet car out there on a Saturday afternoon.”

Saturday afternoon sounds great, but we're thinking rush hour is the better time to fly.
