Curvy hovercraft has spaceship looks, tank-like hatch

The hovercraft is one of the most unappreciated vehicles. You hardly hear about them. Although a hovercraft had a most badass role in Jackie Chan's Rumble in the Bronx, it's never really had the curves to claim the sexy award. On second thought, this futuristic hovercraft concept does.

Designed by 21-year-old Yuhan Zhang, the Volkswagen Aqua is an all-terrain hovercraft with four little electric motorized fans that provide lift and thrust along with a hydrogen cell powered engine. This hovercraft is simply gorgeous.

The Aqua is no 31-man Excelsior Dawes hovercraft, but damn it, it's sleek exterior and Tron-ish interior is good enough for me and a hot date. Popping in and out through this bad boy's hatch cover doesn't look too friendly, but who cares when everyone you're driving this thing around while everyone else is driving a Honda Civic?

Anybody else see the resemblance between the Aqua and Buzz Lightyear's Star Command spaceship, or is it just me?
