Yeah who wants to be tied to the land with their 4WD, quad bike or two seater sports car when you can take them out to sea with you.
Amphibious vehicles are nothing new – the Army has quite a fleet of them, there have been amphibious cars before and many years ago one very brave couple crossed the Atlantic in an amphibious Land Rover but Gibbs Technologies, a company in the UK wants to put amphibious technology within the reach of more than just the military and eccentric.
And they just might do it with these three unique vehicles:
The Quadski is the world’s first high speed genuine all terrain vehicle.
The Aquada is a genuine two seat amphibious sports car.
The Humdinga is a concept vehicle with full-time four wheel drive. It’s powered by a 350 BHP engine that gives it a top speed on land of 160kph and 64kpm on the water.
I can see lots of potential for those vehicles here on the Queensland coast – but licencing them for road use could be a challenge.
