Unfortunately this isn’t a real car… yet. The above is a concept by 21-year-old Chinese industrial designer Yuhan Zhang:

Hovercraft concepts have been a dime a dozen over the years, so why not add another one to the long list of vehicles we wish will one day make it to the assembly line? Created by Chinese industrial designer Yuhan Zhang, the Volkswagen Aqua Hovercraft concept would certainly be a dream come true.

The 21 year old opted for a hybrid setup that sees the main engine powered by a hydrogen fuel cell, while the fans at the end of vehicle controlling the thrust and steering system are powered by individual electric motors. The Volkswagen hovercraft was designed specifically to tackle all of the varying landscapes found throughout China from roads andw rivers to snow and sand.

So who wants one?
