I want to know why it’s so slow given that it comes with 300 bhp.
Would you really want to be seen in that abomination? I'd rather take a normal car and plunge to the bottom of the lake.
It’s pretty slow for a 300 bhp vehicle. I don’t believe it’s due to aero drag, so what is it? Extreme power losses in the drivetrain?
On the water, it's the fastest amphibious vehicle you can buy.
It's slow on land, presumably, due to the transmission and gear ratios. It uses a modified VW Bus transaxle similar to the ones found in dune buggies.
Sounds like it would be better to tow it to the sea than to drive it there. Which kind of negates the point of an amphibious car
It does 80mph on land, per the article. Would you really want to drive this thing any faster than that?
Heh, "modified"...yep:modified VW Bus transaxle
