The Jeep that turns into a speedboat

  •  
    The WaterCar Panther is said to be the world's fastest amphibious car. Its makers claim the vehicle - which looks like it is straight out of a James Bond movie - will reach speeds of more than 80mph [127 km/h] on the road, and up to 44 mph [70 km/h] on water. Once the Panther is in the water, the driver puts it into neutral and pulls a lever to switch to 'jet drive'. A button then lifts the wheels and tyres out of the water allowing it to 'sail' - in less than 15 seconds. It features a Jeep CJ-8 chassis, a Honda Acura 3.7-liter V6 engine, a fiberglass hull, retracting wheels and a jet boat drive. The complete, ready-to-drive model is available from US-based WaterCar for $135,000 USD. (Picture by: Splash/WaterCar.com)
