Strange Vehicles - Russian Ekranopan

Okay, so this isn't a car at all but very cool none-the-less.

Part airplane, part ship, part hovercraft. These things were/are able to go very fast, very low to the surface and because of a boundary layer effect (kind of an air cushion provided at the surface of the water) they can fly with smaller wings and/or less power (less energy required) than a normal plane. Pretty cool stuff.
