The Jetsons' future of flying cars just came a step closer.

Aeromobil, the European firm working on the science fiction-like technology, has released the first pictures of its latest vehicle. And anyone can signal their interest in owning one - it's about to open pre-orders.

The car/plane is the first Aeromobil is making commercially available, updating previous prototype designs, and will be launched at the supercar show Top Marques Monaco next week.

The firm said it "heralds a new era in efficient and exciting travel, offering users an unparalleled choice of transport on the road or in the air". The vehicle can be driven on the road as well piloted in the sky.

The full spec and, perhaps more crucially, the price have not yet been revealed, nor has a shipping date.

Aeromobil last week announced that it has raised €3m (£2.6m) in new funding to help with production.

It's one of a handful of firms working on flying car technology which until recently has been more of a dream than reality. Chinese firm Ehang last year demonstrated its driverless personal drones which are being tested in Las Vegas.

Meanwhile Uber made a major hire from Nasa to lead its own flying car plans.
