    Default 1961 Prototype Vickers Hover Rover

    This is a custom Land Rover prototype. Vickers had started hovercraft development in 1961, and Hover Rover was developed. It was not produced due to a few problems. The main problem was that it required two engines, reducing the payload capacity. Although the hover cushion supported much of the weight, it was still a problem for conventional road operation. The skirt could be lifted for road use. The Hover Rover was never developed further. For a few years Vickers used it as a promotional device for their larger hovercraftsThe Hover Rover was never developed further.
