These are the coolest vehicles you could ever want. They all use High Speed Amphibian (HSA) technology developed by Gibbs Technologies and transition from land to water in seconds.
Quadski is the third demonstration of Gibbs’ HSA technology following the successes of the Aquada and the Humdinga. It is capable of travelling up to 50 mph (72 kph) on land and water and makes the transition at the flick of a switch.
The Quadski and one of the other vehicles, the Humdinga, have some great military and rescue applications.I bet the SEALs will be interested in this stuff.
On land the Humdinga can accelerate from 0-60 in 9.2 seconds and on water can reach the ‘plane’ in less than 10 seconds. It has a curb weight of 2000kg, has all wheel independent air suspension and runs on regular unleaded petrol. The vehicle is 5400mm in length, 1850mm in height and 2000mm in width.
Awesome. My Christmas list has been updated.
