Chinese state news agency Xinhua, along with Southwest Jiaotong University researchers in Chengdu, Sichuan province, have already done it. Or are at least extremely close. This modified car traveled a few hundred yards an inch and one half above a special conductor surface in tests. What’s more surprising, it reached speeds of 140 mph.
