Floating cars

Usually when a car is floating in the water it means somebody screwed up somewhere. Cars don’t belong in the water but that doesn’t stop a certain breed of people to try to make cars that go well in the water as well as on land….which always is bound to fail. So here are a few floating driving contraptions with wheels, Cars that have swimming diploma’s, all of them unquestionably weird & strange.

(Other floating wheeled things we featured here are: buses, tour-things & a landyacht)

Above you see the Gibbs Aqua, more info can be found here: Gibbs ,more models below.

    Bit of info…

    Rinspeed is a tuner and every once in a blue moon they will make a absolutely bonkers concept car… The car in the first two pictures was called the Rinspeed Splash, and was basically a hydrofoil car… The second one was called the Rinspeed SQuba, and was a Wet Submarine/car hybrid. The seats were made from neoprene rubber (the same material Wetsuits are made of), and the seats also had built in o2 hoses and face masks. The car itself was based on the Lotus Elise platform. I don’t want to think how much money was poured into this insane showpiece.

    As for the Amphicar well it was trash as both a boat and car. Numerous reliability issues and serious rust issues plagued the Amphicar… Not all German design is good, this thing is in a book of the worlds worst cars that I have somewhere around my house.
