Call it bizarre or strange. This hovercraft, inspired by DeLorean has been featured in the mouthwatering car collection of Jay Leno, and is presently up for sale to interested buyers.
The DoLorean-inspired hovercraft is powerful enough to take you across water body and on road
According to report reaching us on Naijauto, the owner of this stunning model commenced work on it eleven years ago and finished everything in year 2012. Its exterior look is similar to DeLorean DMC-12. There is no doubt having a hovercraft version of DeLorean would come at a huge cost.
