2020 Volkswagen Aqua Hovercraft Concept
A new concept from Volkswagen.
The Volkswagen Aqua is a futuristic hovercraft concept created by Yuhan
Zhang, a 21 year old designer from China. Yuhan just graduated with honors
from Xihua University with a degree in Industrial Design. Currently she's
in the process of selecting a Transportation Design course to further her
The Volkswagen Aqua is designed to cope with the wide variety of terrain
which covers China. From the lakes, rivers and coastal waters, to the
roads, wetlands and snow and ice. The concept was shortlisted in the CDN
Car Design Awards China, based on the brief entitled simply; "Chinese
off-road vehicle" by Volkswagen.
Like most hovercraft, the Volkswagen Aqua uses more than one engine. The
primary motor, which is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell, is used to drive
the main fan which inflates the skirt around the vehicle and raises the
Aqua just above the ground. The fans at the rear of the vehicle are powered
by individual electric motors to provide forward thrust and directional
The styling of the Volkswagen Aqua is extremely clean and simple. There's
very little clutter to the lines, except perhaps at the rear due to the
quartet of fans. The interior has room for two people, and features a
similar minimalist vibe as the exterior.
Perhaps our only area of concern is with how you actually enter the
vehicle. See that small round hatch at the rear of the vehicle, the one
located where the rear window would normally be? That's your one and only
Flying Car Heaven!!! $14,995 This Exists!! This Is NOT A Prototype Mock Up! Buy a paramotor Now!!!
http://u-turnusa.com $14,995 Flying car! This exists, this is not a CAD
drawing simulation. This has been selling all over the world for years.
This is the coolest personal aircraft there is. Super simple, inexpensive,
awesome safety. Matter of fact nobody has ever been seriously injured or
killed with one. This is the power sport of all power sports. It will go
anywhere your ATV, snowmobile, waverunner or motorcycle will go but with no
registration, certification or license!! This is 3 different aircraft in on
vehicle. The glider can be flown with no motor at all off a hill or
mountian. The power plant comes off the back in seconds and turns into a
backpack that can be foot launched in tight areas and the S-Trike is a
total blast to fly all over the place!! This is some serious fun and is way
safer than skiing, mountian biking or riding a motorcycle. This is the
stuff!! Fly where you want to go.

wankel turbo ski race boat
owner has opined, boat is going 105 here but has done 118! That's pretty
fast in a boat that size, especially with the chine walk it's doing.
Driving this would be like laying a 2x4 across a bowling ball and trying to
balance yourself, on ice!!! And people waterski behind these too!!!
Flying Car - Terrafugia Transition street-legal aircraft
The Transition® brings fun to personal aviation by combining driving and
flying in one state-of-the-art vehicle. Glass cockpit avionics, carbon
fiber construction, and innovative mechanisms make the Transition®. A
steering wheel and gas and brake pedals on the ground make it familiar to
drive while a stick and rudder pedals provide responsive control in flight.
By being able to land and drive, not only is the "last mile problem" solved
but inclement weather will no longer stop your trip. Running on premium
unleaded automotive gasoline, the same engine powers the propeller in
flight or the rear wheels on the ground. Converting between flight and
drive modes is comparable to putting down the top on your convertible and
you can keep the Transition® at home in the garage.
