    Incredible Amphibious Cars

    Rinspeed Splash

    Well known Swiss sportscar tuning firm Rinspeed built an amphibious car in 2004. With complicated hydrofoil design, the vehicle can go with speed 31 mph (50 km/h) on water which is still pretty fast. Under 30 knots, the Rinspeed can cruise in water like a conventional boat. And on land it s even quicker, boasting a top speed of 124 mph (200 km/h). This amazing hydro car is powered by natural gas, and it s the first amphibious vehicle to be fueled by this environmentally friendly resource. It has a 750cc, two cylinder, turbo charged engine, and its integrated hydrofoil design can be deployed at water depths over four feet.
