1. Incredible Amphibious Cars
Cars that can do more than run on road is undoubtedly a very good idea. Credit goes to WW II for making cars that can swim. And though the largest numbers of incredible amphibious cars were made way back in the 1960s, the prospect of a car that can navigate waterways like a boat continues to attract inventors. Here, below is a list of Top 10 Incredible Amphibious Cars. Have a look!
2. WaterCar Panther
Is it a Jeep? Is it a speedboat? No, it s WaterCar s Panther amphibious vehicle. A Californian based car company has designed the world s fastest amphibious car called the Panther, pictured above. For 13 years, Dave March, the founder of Panther has dreamed about building a car that would perform equally well on water as they did on land. In fact, he wanted his cars to reach freeway type speeds in the water. The result was the WaterCar Python, which became the fastest amphibious car in the world, reaching road speeds of over 125 mph (201 km/h) and water speeds of at least 60 mph (96 km/h).
3. Sea Lion
You want a car that goes fast, a car that looks unique, a car that can transition into a speed boat in seconds. Well, there s a car for you the Sea Lion prototype: the world s fastest amphibious land speed vehicle. Actually, it s not technically a car. Witt himself, the designer of car, calls it an Amphibious World Speed Record Competition Vehicle. It was designed to set world records on land and on water. On the road, the Sea Lion clocks in at 125 mph (201 km/h). Not terribly impressive, but it s off the road where the Sea Lion shines. In the water, meanwhile, it can reach respectable speeds of as much as 60 mph (96 km/h). The body of the Sea Lion was made by using TIG welded 5052 aluminum and CNC milled.
4. Dobbertin HydroCar
This aluminum bodied, meticulously crafted amphibian is unique in that it literally transforms its shape fromLAND MODE toWATER MODE with the flip of a switch. On land, its full length articulating sponsons are raised and become the car s fenders. Upon entering the water, the sponsons are lowered nearly eight inches to transform the car into a tunnel hulled watercraft within a matter of seconds. It s main body is made of type 304 stainless steel, so rust will not be a problem. Under the hood, it has a fully dyno tuned Chevrolet engine that produces 762 horsepower at 5,800 rpm. Originally, the car used a six bladed propeller. However, according to Dobbertin, this didn t create enough bite in the water, so he replaced it with a four bladed Rolla stainless steel propeller that was yet to be tested in the water before the HydroCar was sold. Despite required tweaking, it s still an incredible amphibious vehicle.
5. Hydra Spyder
An open top, high speed & high performance amphibious sports vehicle, produced by Cool Amphibious Manufacturers International (CAMI). The Hydra Spyder is an ultra modern, stylish, retro looking part sports car, part speedboat. On land, it can reach speeds of at least 125 mph (201 km/h), while in the water it can attain 53 mph (85 km/h). The standard production model weights approximately 3,300 lbs and is powered by a Corvette LS2 6.0 liter V 8 engine rated at 400 h.p., 6000 rpm, and 400 ft. lbs of torque at 4000rpm. The model also includes a 5 speed manual high performance close ratio transmission and front wheel drive with 3.73 1 axle ratio.
