That $20,000 ArcaBoard Hoverboard Has More Horsepower than Some Cars
On Christmas Eve, the world was introduced to the new ArcaBoard. Created by the ARCA Space Corporation—an aerospace company based out of Las Cruces, New Mexico—the $20,000 hoverboard promises to be the real deal and not some Doc Brown/Tony Hawk stunt.
So, what do we know about this thing?
According to ARCA, the ArcaBoard is one powerful machine. The device comes packed with 36 high-powered electric ducted fans that create up to 272 horsepower—more than every vehicle that made this list of “high horsepower coupes and compact cars”—and 430 lbs of thrust. All of that is tucked inside of a 57x30x6 inch frame built from composite materials and that weighs 180 lbs. ARCA said those stats make this flying machine the most powerful and lightest personal vehicle ever created. “ArcaBoard represents total freedom of movement, total freedom of travel,” they said.
