Gibbs technologies - Aquada

Recently a friend did a study on the Aquada, and i found it kinda interesting. For those of you who dont know what this is, it is the first High Speed Amphibious (HSA) vehicle and it can reach speeds of over 160kmph on land and about 40k's on water. As this is my second time round writing this (computer froze the first time) im going to make it brief!

The Aquada website goes into heaps more detail about Gibbs Technologies designs and a few of their other projects and achievements - such as Sir Richard Branson's record crossing of the English Channel.

I found the 'Humdinga' particularly interesting - a newly created four-wheel drive amphibious vehicle, which they're hoping to put into production soon. Check out the site if your curious.
Its kinda scary how fast times are changing.
