That was all a fake, a real good looking fake, but still.....

I'm not sure what is with VW and fake hover cars.

They also have this "concept" design:


I believe a gal right out of college designed it all based on looks with no clue on how/if it would work as a hovercraft.....


Just a sore subject for me I guess since I build REAL hovercrafts:




You can see all the hovercafts I built, plus the V8 beetle I'm building at: Zach Bell’s Creations - Hovercrafts, Woodworking, V8 Beetles, and more!

I agree. I am no genius but without some kind of friction or reverse "thrusters" how do you come to a quick stop like that. I think they(vw) are making way to much money. I can not say to much since my kids are going to college to learn how to make those fake videos lol.
