* The new Spark built Corbettite train from ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' does not really need tracks and can make its own tunnels through rocks in order to meet up with existing underground lines. The Beast also did not require tracks, but since it was a murderous machine that wanted to eat everything instead of give passengers a ride this was less than optimal.

** Speaking of Triple Changers, Astrotrain didn't strictly need tracks to ferry his fellow Decepticons about in his locomotive mode, and he could even transform into shuttle mode while in transit without disrupting his passengers... somehow (considering he had to turn upside-down to complete the transformation).

* ''WesternAnimation/MASK'' featured several cars that could turn into planes, and motorcycles that could turn into flying vehicles as well. Some of the other cars could deploy different types of craft (usually either a boat or a plane), leaving behind the main vehicle as a shell, and still others could convert from street cars into tank-like battle vehicles.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'', several of the Autobots were modified so that they could retract their wheels and replace them with hydrofoils for long-distance water travel. In addition, Brawn could turn the front end of his car into a [[DrillTank large drill bit]] for tunneling. These options were never included on the [[MerchandiseDriven original toys]], although Tracks' ability to become a flying Corvette ''was'' part of his toy. (The mail-order, toy-only Omnibots Downshift and Overdrive could also become flying cars.)
** While most of the Triple Changers had vehicle modes that were completely different from each other, Springer was unique in that his helicopter mode was basically the same as his car mode, just with the rear end folded out to the rear to form a tail, and the front bumpers shifted and extended to form wings. Springer was also the only one of the original Triple Changers who retained his Cybertronian vehicle modes.

to:

* ''Videogame/{{Vigilante 8}}'' and the second game feature {{Power Up}}s that change the wheels of the vehicles into propellers (for driving on the waters) and, in the Alaska stage, skis for front wheels and bulkier wheels for the back ones.
* ''Videogame/CrashNitroKart'': [[BigBad Emperor Velo]] tells the kidnapped racers (either Team Bandicoot or Team Evil) that he has their vehicles modified so they can race in the tracks he has set on 4 planets. The modification seems to be the wheels, which can now turn 90 degrees and emit anti-gravity/magnetic waves so they can ride on the heavily-tilted tracks or giant tube tracks.

* WesternAnimation/CoolMcCool's Coolmobile is another vehicle that can take flight when necessary.

necessary. Dick Dastardly's Mean Machine was especially versatile--in "Real Gone Ape" it's used as a submarine.

Cars in fiction tend to be [[CoolCar pretty awesome]]. Some just look cool and go fast. Others have [[WeaponizedCar weapons systems]] and [[InvisibilityCloak active camouflage]] built into them. And then there are these cars, which can transform in order to traverse terrain meant for other vehicles. Like boats. Or ''planes''. There are practical reasons for this to be the case, of course; after all, you wouldn't want to have to give up chasing the villains because they planned a water escape that you didn't account for. The primary reason, though, is the RuleOfCool. Because being able to drive off a pier in a sports car, transform on the way down, and hit the water in a speedboat is just plain {{badass}}.
