I didn’t know this, but Matthew Reise built a DeLorean hovercraft one time and this is a video of him taking the iconic nerd boner inducing vehicle for a spin by the Golden Gate Bridge.
Matthew said of his creation way back when it was still under construction:
If you’re like me, when you saw the flying Delorean in Back to the Future, you thought, “I want one of those!” I think this dream has been brewing since I thought that as a kid, and a few years ago I decided to just build one.
When it is done, the craft will be able to hover on anything flat (asphalt, sand, water, etc), but it will be mostly driven on the San Francisco Bay. The hovercraft is registered with the DMV in California as a boat (it is not street legal). The top speed should be around 45 mph, which is pretty impressive for a vehicle with no breaks
We’ll probably never see an actual flying DeLorean in our lifetime (well, okay, maybe), but I guess I’ll settle for watching this is the meantime.
