Floating DeLorean

Floating DeLorean


This quirky floating DeLorean "hovercraft" has been around since the beginning of the decade, and we've written about it before, but a new video with hilarious footage was too fun to resist. Clips old and new have been patched together to create a five-plus-minute mixtape, all in hopes of selling the thing to a fan of the infamous automotive brand and Back to the Future franchise. Originally launched as a Kickstarter, the floating DeLorean was built by a San Fransisco gentleman by the name of Matthew Riese. Since he first crafted the vehicle, which is a hand-made lookalike fiberglass and styrofoam shell on top of an original blueprint for a Universal Hovercraft UH-13P, Riese has continually improved upon the design. The 36-inch rear fan that pushes it is linked to a Briggs & Stratton Vanguard commercial engine, while the 24-inch lift fan gets its power from a Briggs & Stratton 875 Series engine. Its six-to-eight-inch vertical lift allows it to skate over any flat surface, and Riese claims it has a top speed of 31 mph on water. ........
