Hovercrafts are unique in that they have one foot firmly in the real world while the other is totally in the world of science fiction. When the turn of the century rolled around, we all bemoaned the lack of hovercrafts while full-well knowing we had them – they just weren’t futuristic enough for us yet. Renegade’s IQ hovercraft is one of the more accessible versions available today, and while they’re no Jetson’s hovercraft, they sure are fast and fun as hell.
This two passenger ship features a 750cc 4 stroke engine that pumps out 35 horsepower and can cruise along surfaces at 30 miles an hour or rev all the way up to 50 provided the wind is in your favor. Along with impressive specs when it comes to speed, this thing only weighs 355 pounds and can put out a 150 mile range making it both easy to transport and good for piloting around hours on end. Defying its own bulk, this amphibious vehicle can pull 360 spins and dance around on the water while its carbon-kevlar hull and inflatable skirt float just above the surface. If a boat is too tame a toy for you, this may just be the right recreational vehicle for this summer. Prices start at $32,000. [Purchase]
