Billed as a luxury aircar, the Dsalpor is affordable by almost anyone, and holds none of the social cachet of, for example, a Merton. In essence, it is a family aircar with the addition of an entertainment centre and a wet bar. No sensors are installed, limiting the Dsalpor to the ground- based Roadgrid™ on most civilized worlds. Although the Dsalpor is capable of reaching orbit, its thin skin and lack of life support make any such trips unlicensed; an offense usually punishable by confiscation of the offending vehicle.
