The US$75,000 Mercier-Jones Supercraft is the hovercraft that Batman would drive

What, your supercar can only drive on the road? This hovercraft will take you across sand and sea in style

Is that a car? A boat? Neither; this is the Mercier-Jones Supercraft, a hovercraft for multi-millionaires that's inspired by supercars like the Bugatti Veyron. But unlike a supercar, you can drive it across a lake.

Is it as fast as it looks? Yup – it's got a hybrid-electric powertrain with a liquid-cooled 60hp two-rotor engine and twin electric motors, delivering a combined 102hp and taking it to an estimated top speed of 128kph. Unsurprisingly, the manufacturers reckon it stands a good chance of tackling the 90.5kph land-speed and 139kph water-speed records.

What about fixtures and fittings? This is a hand-built luxury vehicle, so you won't want for creature comforts; it's made of carbon fibre and packs in GPS, an Android-powered cockpit display, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, a 4-speaker sound system with an optional subwoofer, F1-style seats, wood trim and refrigerated personal drink wells. Because what sort of animal would drink a tepid martini in their hovercraft?

How much? Expect to pay top dollar for the Supercraft – it'll start at US$75,000 (S$95,325), with ten collectors' editions going on sale in May and a further 50 available by October this year.

Does it come in black? Yes, Bruce Wayne, it does. In "Gotham Night," appropriately enough.
