For real? Startup talks 2,000-hp turbine-hybrid big rig and 520-hp UTV
// Gizmag Emerging Technology Magazine

If there was ever a time to dazzle the world with promises of futuristic electric car technologies and crazy performance estimates, it would be 2016. Salt Lake City-based startup Nikola Motor Company may have a long way to go, but it believes it can revolutionize transportation. Given its overnight ascendance and off-the-charts claims, we're nothing if not skeptical.

// Gizmag Emerging Technology Magazine

Believe it or not, the world plays host to more than one off-road buggy that can tear up the dirt, then go airborne to fly from point to point. There's the Maverick flying car, and now there's the SkyRunner MK 3.2, itself an independently designed and engineered successor to the Parajet Skycar. The SkyRunner can rip over the ground at speeds up to 70 mph (113 km/h), then shoot through the air at up to 52 mph (84 km/h) with a separate drive system. And now it can be yours ... for a price. We chatted with SkyRunner founder and CEO Stewart Hamel to learn more about the ins and outs of the newly redesigned air-ATV.
