Will your first car look like this?

The hover car

By the time you lot learn to drive, this is how you could be getting around.

It looks like a flying saucer but it's called an M 200G and it's been designed by scientists in America.

The vehicle hovers up to 10ft off the ground. It has eight engines and can be powered by different types of fuel.

The hover car is set to go on sale shortly, but - at around 45,000 a pop - it's not cheap, so start saving your pocket money now!

The designers say the vehicle has plenty of leg room and enough space for a passenger.

One of them said: "Cars are finished as a means of getting around. It's only a matter of time."
