The incredible straddling bus is real. From model to a full-sized tunnel bus, it took a Chinese company only two months. Update: Now with video.

In May a model of a straddling bus was presented at a trade-show in Beijing. The bus straddles two lanes, allowing cars to drive under the bus. The land-air bus runs on special tracks placed along the sides of the road. The video of the model-sized straddling bus looked already like a scene out of a sci-fi movie. 

Now the company building the Straddling Bus has celebrated the completion of the bodywork. The straddling bus went from model to full sized reality in 2 months. The so called Transit Explore Bus (TEB) is 22 meters long, 7.8m wide and 4.8m high. It will have space for 55 passengers. This first straddling bus is a compact version the company is building for a first road test still this summer in a Chinese city.

The designers of the straddling bus say that they can be built to carry up to 1,400 passengers.

Chinese Huanqui (via People.cn) has several more photos from the straddling bus in construction.
