This silver car, called the Sea Lion, just broke the top water speed record for fastest amphibious vehicle by topping out at 60 MPH. Marc Witt’s sleek brushed aluminum and stainless steel vehicle took over 6 years to build.
#1 Want vs. Need… Want yes need no. Still freaking cool.
How fast does it go on land?
Land? Where we're going we don't need land.
Hopefully fast enough to make it to the junkyard
i was hoping it'd at least show it doing 60 in the water as well.
Uuum, pretty awesome!
Hell yeah let's drive to Ireland
it spins? I don't get that part
"We would appreciate its return, 007! Intact, for once, when you return from the field."
"You'd be surprised at the amount of wear and tear that goes on out there in the field."
007 couldn't use this… No room to have sex with thousands of women.
Yeah, but does it have 007's Lotus Esprit's anti-theft system? Boom.
You guys haven't seen For Your Eyes Only!
One of the funniest of Bond scenes [The Lotus has a sticker stating that it has the ultimate anti-theft protection, and yet the dude goes at it with a crow-bar. Then... BOOOM... the car blows up! Hilarious.]
Separately, I hear that in Joburg, South Africa, some cars now have real flame-thrower anti-carjack systems. You try to jack, you get FIRE. Try rolling up in the Mc Donalds drive through there.
its kinda ugly… needs a good paint job -but cool otherwise
Ive seen better looking motors on scrapheap challenge.
#1 is a cool car I want and need.
I'm impressed, but I'll skip it. I'll rather have a flying car!!!
Is it just me or is that thing fucking retarded?
I totally agree.. I can't believe someone totally wasted 6 years of ther life on that ugly a$$ POS
Did you see that Camaro from a few years ago? Did the exact same thing, but still looked like a Camaro!
It performs horribly as a boat.
Am I the only one who thinks this looks like the batmobile?
Am I the only one who thinks Randyb doesn't know what the batmobile looks like?
Yes, yes you are.
Interesting choice of background. I'm sure Mozart would be proud?
Music….I meant background music
Too late, whore.
That's not very nice. Try keeping calm and chiving on.
I see two things… It has two bicycles, but only seats one person?!
And there's no cup holders.
shut up and take all my money
I was hoping for a missile launcher and not storage for bicycles when that compartment opened in the video.
Yes, but will it blend?
You won't be picking up any chicks at the marina with that thing.
i like turtles
I will stick with Bond's Aston Martin, it can go submersible and has a few other tricks up its sleeve too.
