Great Scott! It's only a blimmin' DeLorean Hovercraft! Is this Dr. Emmett Brown's latest invention? A symbiotic hybrid of two of Back To The Future's greatest props: the Hoverboard and The DeLorean DMC-12? We're not sure, and don't really care. We're just glad it exists.

Check the vid below to see a DMC-12 waft along San Francisco Bay on a cushion of air (potentially at 140kph), do a beach landing, followed by a pirouette, and then continue on its way like nothing happened.

We don't know who's driving (maybe the Libyans?), but we're just glad that someone had their camera phone unholstered and got this on digital tape. Meanwhile, we're also trying to get confirmation it runs on a hybrid nuclear / petrol motor requiring 1.21 jigawatts to charge...
