The N007 Tupolev is powered by a 9-cylinder aircraft engine generating 365 horsepower. The aerosled is made from aluminium alloy and weighs 3,150 pounds.

With a maximum speed of 80 mph, N007 Tupolev hovers over water, marshland, ice or snow with ease.

Implications - Hybrid designs are increasingly growing in popularity among consumers who are no longer satisfied with traditional vehicles, products and services. Businesses that create products that can be interpreted as unusual are continuously proving to be more tempting for consumers who are indulging in high-end purchases.
