A custom built ‘DeLorean Hovercraft’ made from fibreglass-wrapped styrofoam coated with metallic paint, powered by two Briggs & Stratton lawnmower engines (one for lift, the other for thrust).
Originally built in 2008, improved and upgraded many times since, it can hover 20cm above any flat surface and hit 50km/h on calm water.
Currently for sale on eBay for €40,000, 10% of which will be donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinsons Research.

With the Electric DeLorean not due out until 2013, DMC has approved an appetite-whetter in the sleek and shiny form of the DeLorean Bicycle:
Italian-made Columbus XCR tube frame — in stainless steel, of course — as well as a belt drive transmission, an 11-speed internally-geared hub, front and rear hydraulic disc brakes, a luminescent coating on the wheels, an Italian-made gel saddle, and a full carbon fork.
The price? $5,500.
