World's Fastest Amphibious Car - as part of the news series by GeoBeats.
This is the Sea Lion. Have you ever wanted to drive your car into the lake and have it transform into a speedboat in the blink of an eye? Then the Sea Lion is the vehicle for you. Equipped with gears that have a top land speed of 180 miles per hour and clocked in at 60 miles per hour in the water, the Sea Lion is in the running to be the world’s fastest vehicle capable of land and water travel.
It is a top competitor out of approximately 25 other vehicles for the unofficial Amphibious World Speed Record Competition. The lack of rules for the competition allows many technical and engineering feats to be achieved without restrictions other than the inventor’s imagination and resources.
With a price tag of just over a quarter million dollars, the one of a kind Sea Lion can be yours. Its designer and builder Marc Witt is selling this unique amphibious vehicle online through Fantasy Junction. The Sea Lion is still in development as a prototype, though it functions perfectly on both land and water and can be upgraded to hold an even more powerful engine.
