Gibbs Aquada

http://www.aquada.co.uk

I think they have a Freelander V6 with RWD for road use and a jet drive for james bond mode. Im sure they are over 100k though!
I believe Richard Branson took one accross the channel
A couple of good videos on the site, interesting concept, but for 100k I would have a Phantom Evolution RIB, and an Ultima GTR!

Last year, I saw one of those Aquadas drive down the slipway at Yarmouth (IOW), through the harbour and across to Lymington. Quite a surprising sight!

I know which one would win in a ramming contest though - and would be capable of crossing rougher terrain.

Having said that the Gibbs vehicle IS a lot cooler!!!

What I can't work out though is what all that salt water does to the running gear - I know what it does to my trailer!

Just remember these are concepts at the moment - you can't actually buy one - they seem more interested in leasing out their technology so others can discover the joys of putting them into production!!!
