More big toys for big boys...
This is the "Aquada":
From the official website:
"The Aquada is a revolutionary showcase of High Speed Amphibian (HSA) technology."
"Entry to the water is via beach, boat ramp, slipway or directly from the water's edge. Once afloat, the transition from road vehicle to High Speed Amphibian (HSA) is effortlessly achieved."
"Simply press a button and drive into the water. The wheels automatically rise and as you press the accelerator nearly a tonne of thrust pushes the Aquada onto the plane. The whole process takes less than 12 seconds. The Aquada can plane at over 30mph."
"Powerful enough to tow a water-skier and with a style and class of its own, the Gibbs Aquada is the perfect leisure vehicle. It combines the thrill of an open top car with the sheer exhilaration experienced in a high performance speedboat."
These are slated to go for about $85K...which ain't cheap.
They also plan to produce a couple of other platforms; one is the "Quadski", an amphibious ATV which will go for $15-18K:
Another is the "Humdinga", based on the Hummer:
Predating these vehicles by many decades is the "Amphicar"; according to some "Amphicar" owners' groups, hundreds of them are still operational:
Here are a couple of their websites:
I'm thinking a "Quadski" (or 2) might be nice to have in Hawaii...
